With the onset of the warmer weather, it’s time to take to the water again and the Glebe Rowing Club is hoping that instead of swimming this year, physical activity lovers might try out another water sport.
The club, now in its 133rd year of operation, is looking for new members who are interested in learning the sport of rowing. The club attracts a strong group of ‘Social Saturday’ rowers with their members getting fit, improving their technique and making friends all at the same time.
For those looking for the competitive edge of rowing, Glebe Rowing Club members can also compete in weekend regattas and international events such as Outgames and Gay Games.
“It is a great way to stay fit,” says club member Brad Smith.
“With spring in the air, it is a great time to get out and enjoy our sunshine and friendship whilst learning to row on Blackwattle Bay.”
Club members can choose their own individual level of participation, ranging from weekend regatta competitions to learning the ropes whilst having a chat. Whatever your level of participation, Smith said he sees the club as an opportunity to have a little fun.
“Meet new people and enjoy the beauty of living on the world’s best harbour,” he said.
Learn to Row classes commence in November and run until January.
