FAQ’s

What night are training nights?

Training takes place most of the year and varies on the time of year, no rowing takes place between the end of Septmeber til the beginning of November as this is the end of the racing season and all members have a cool off period. Training for the World Champs commences in November right through to the event in May. To find out what night is best for you please contact our novice co-ordinator on the contact page.

When are Junior training Nights?

Juniors train 4.45 to 5.45pm on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Contact either Lyn W ( 01736 850958 ) or Zoe Payne ( 01736 367989 )

What shall I wear?

Often when rowing in the summer and the weather is good, just a t shirt and shorts will be perfectly adequate, however bring a hoodie or jacket along to keep warm after. When rowing in the winter more layers are definitely recommended! Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a but wet (splash etc).

How long does a training session last for?

Training sessions usually last for an hour period.

How do I find you?

There is a map of our location on the contact page. However here is the address for Sat Nav’s etc. Mount’s Bay Pilot Gig Club, King’s Road, Marazion, Cornwall.

I don’t think I can do it..

Don’t panic! Everyone says the same thing when they first start, after a few coaching sessions we will have you rowing in a consistent crew and rowing anywhere from once to four times a week.

    Hi

    I would love to start rowing again, I did a bit in Swansea on the river and loved it. I am no expert!!

    Not sure if this is the right time to start as you may already have a team but would love to hear from you.

    Many thanks
