Feel the sleek boat glide through the water underneath you, and enjoy being part of a team learning new skills. See Belfast from the river!

You will use a rowing machine inside to learn the posture and grip to be used, and the sequence of muscles used during a rowing stroke.

You will then be introduced to rowing on the water in a boat balanced by others, where you will learn to move the boat using the same sequence of muscles, as well as posture and grip.
