Intermediate to Advanced Sculling

This program is designed to help scullers improve boat speed and sculling performance through the development of a more efficient stroke. Increased performance is achieved by the use of various drills and personal feedback to enhance the drive, follow-through and recovery that yields a longer and more powerful stroke. The group is open to all club scullers who are at a minimum, confident rowing a single scull in rough water, have demonstrable boat handling skills and are willing to practice on their stroke outside of the group sessions. Mainly focused on single sculling but those who wish to row in doubles/triple are expected to find and organize their own partners.
