Learn to Row is well under way at the Mercer Rowing Club with some very exciting prospective young rowers learning the skills. The weather hasn’t been the best but hopefully everyone will get a chance on the water this Sunday and experience the thrill of being in a large (8’s) boat and actually rowing.
If you haven’t attended yet and wish to do so it’s not too late. This Learn to Row course is simply an introduction to the sport and a hands on experience as to whether or not the sport is for you. Also, for those who have winter sports commitments on a Sunday morning, just contact Jim Matchett at the High School and discuss a suitable time for a visit/introduction.
Rowing is a huge sport nationwide. The Maadi Cup which is the Secondary School Champs annually has between 2000 and 2500 athlete’s participating. This summer Maadi Cup is being held at Twizel, a very exciting trip for those that qualify to enter.
So, have go, Mercer is at your back door, just waiting for you !!
