Leichhardt Rowing Club

Recreational Rowers

Not everyone wants to compete in races. Many people just want to row for health and fitness. If this is you then we may cater for your interests.

Recreational rowers meet at the Club on Saturdays and Sundays at 6.30am.

If you have not rowed before or only have limited experience, then you will need to complete a Learn To Row course before you can join the Recreational Rowing group. We match age and ability in crews from the group and row in eights. Each crew is supervised by an experienced club rower who provides coaching. Crews are usually off the water by 9 am and gather for coffee and breakfast.

Boat allocation is subject to these Recreational rowers satisfying the Club Captain of their rowing competence (as do all Club members), and understanding of the Waterways rules of safety and navigation.
