Classes now forming for 2020 Learn to Scull summer sessions!

Learn to Scull at BIAC

In this sculling intro program, rowers will kick off their enjoyment of a new sport in a friendly and supportive small-group environment. Sculling is a wonderful form of low-impact exercise and these sessions offer an exceptional opportunity for adults (21 and older) of all abilities to experience rowing in the waters surrounding Bair Island.

Learn to Scull is a "Level 1" introductory program that teaches sculling basics in six 2-hour sessions of coached training over two weeks. You will learn how to row in stable training singles (1x), including technique fundamentals, rowing terminology, safety practices, traffic patterns on our waterway and how to navigate.

After completing two weeks (12 hours) of instruction, most participants have the skills and confidence to row safely on their own or with rowing buddies, outside of a class, or interest in joining a team or advanced class.

What is sculling?

In sculling, each rower has two oars each which allows them to row in boat by themselves, a 1x (single) or in a boat with two (double) or four (quad) people. Sculling is ideal for people who want to learn and then be able to train on their own schedule.
