I took the Calm Waters morning sculling clinic last year and found it very enlightening. Nothing like a video review to illuminate the difference between how you think you are sculling, and what you are actually doing. I recommend it. - Tor Anderson

Ans, Dorothy, Allene, maybe Phyllis had some coaching from John & Charlotte last time. I love the way they coach. Unfortunately, my coaching times were always during gale force winds, so I got a lot more out of rowing the quad with Charlotte and feeling what they were talking about... that unrushed catch & rolling out of bow etc. -  Melissa Harper

I took semi private lessons from them and enjoyed it very much. I love their way of teaching; first see some first-class scullers on video and see how they row. You think it is not important when you watch them but once you are on the water you find yourself doing what they did and your style improves tremendously. At that point you know what John and Charlotte are looking for and their way of coaching (to get you there) is fabulous! Then there is this video afterwards of you in all its glory! They are gentle in their critique but to the point.You sure have enough to work on for a whole year! Definitely worth your money! - Ans Bekkers
