Scheduled Summer Rowing Times

RowingPEI at the Charlottetown Yacht Club is pleased to announce our summer schedule for 2010. To accommodate our growing membership we will offer sessions each week at the following times:

Tuesday 7:00-8:30 PM
Thursday 6:00-7:30 AM
Saturday 7:30-9:00 AM
Sunday 7:00-8:30 PM

At these sessions a safety boat driver will be made available to facilitate a safe practice environment and to assist new members with learning to row. There is no obligation to attend any particular session.

For this summer RowingPEI has also abandoned the traditional structured learn to row format of offering a private set number of sessions to each new group of rowers. We have done this in favor of a “punch card” format.

Prospective rowers will join in with the training group at these scheduled times at their leisure, until they develop the competence to take equipment out on their own (typically 4 sessions). Competence will largely be determined on one’s ability to move the equipment to and from the docks with care and one’s knowledge of the flow pattern.

This new model better fits the variable weather, the availability of coaches, and interests of our current membership. As rowers develop demonstrate competence they can make arrangements to row on their own or with a crew outside of the scheduled training times. Individuals and crews of all sizes are welcome.

We hope to see you on the water!
