This Coastal Rowing series consists of four 1.5 hour sessions over 4 days:

  • May 31, Tuesday, 5-6:30pm
  • June 2, Thursday, 5-6:30pm
  • June 7, Tuesday, 5-6:30pm

Coastal Rowing is the latest rage and a great skill for BIAC’s windy afternoons. Rowers will use the Coastal 1x, Coastal 2x and Coastal 4x+ as well as open water boats.

Skills taught in this class include:

  • learning to row in wind and waves (and embrace them!)
  • buoy turns
  • coastal race formats – what they are and how to participate
  • how to safely reenter an open water boat in windy conditions

Join us to learn and practice open water rowing from Coach Amanda, who participated in the last three Coastal World Championships. 

The cost for this class is $150 for members; $200 for non-members. Registrants may be asked about their rowing experience upon registration to make sure this is the right class for them.

NOTE: Rowers must be competent and comfortable in a 21' or 24' (wherry) single. Some sessions will be in group boats; please email Amanda if you are not comfortable in bigger boats. We recommend at least one year of experience as optimal to enjoy this class. 

THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER CLASS TO LEARN HOW TO ROW. Please register for Learn to Scull if you are new to rowing.

The class has a minimum of 3 and maximum of 8 participants.
