Mid-morning break – fruit and refreshments.



Meals and refreshments provided.


Land-based sessions designed to improve the mental and physical aspects of your rowing.

Afternoon rowing orientated fitness seminars can include:

• Recovery
• Stretching
• Core stability

• A talk from a professional Olympic rower



The course concludes at 16.00 daily, apart from Friday which finishes at 15:00 to allow participants to travel home.


A timetable of supervised events will run in the evening for the residential course attendees. The cost of these activities will be additional to the cost of the course.




Embankment, Putney

The Boathouse is a 13-minute walk from Putney Bridge station.  Rowing will take place on The River Thames going upstream from Putney Bridge to Chiswick Bridge, known as The Championship Course. Afternoon sessions will take place in the boathouse in the Bill Mason Club room or the gym.



Top coaches, coxes and fitness experts

Coaches are selected on their proven track record for coaching rowing to a high level. All have an excellent experience of rowing and coaching on Tideway waters and many have an international rowing career under their belt. All coaching is done from a coaching launch (motor boat) so the coach can stay in close contact with their crews at all times.

Coach profiles will be announced here in the spring.
