Hooray it’s time to go rowing again!  In the northern hemisphere the autumn is time to get going in big boats ready for fall head racing and long distance training.

But wait, your rowing club needs work first

The equipment maintenance plan is essential to do first – before anything else. So set about organising a working bee for all club members.

  • Sweep out the boathouse
  • Get all boats onto trestles, check the span, rigger height, pitch
  • Replace any worn parts – gates, wheels on the seat, shoes
  • Send outboard engines to be serviced, check all rowing electronics works and batteries aren’t dead.
  • Have a BBQ and pat yourselves on the back.

Now let’s start training again

Getting back in the boat means some muscle soreness, probably some blisters and hopefully no injuries.
