Summer Classes and Programs

BIAC offers the following "learn to" programs offering opportunities to learn a variety of water sports and enjoy the waters around Bair Island and the Port of Redwood City.


Sweep Rowing at BIACLearn to Row

In sweep rowing, each rower uses one oar. Sweep rowers typically row in boats with 4 or 8 rowers and often have a coxswain steering the boat. Sweep is ideal for someone who wants the camaraderie of a team sport and aims to go fast in big boats!

We're offering 6 sessions from May-August. Click here to learn more and register!


Learn to Scull

In sculling, each rower has two oars, which allows them to row in a boat by themselves (a single) or in a boat with 2 or 4 people. Sculling is ideal for people who want to learn rowing technique and then be able to train on their own schedule.
