Around 30 enthusiastic St Paul’s students have joined the Learn2Row programme during Term 1. The programme will provide them with a taste of St Paul’s rowing and/or coxing experience.

In this rowing course, they will develop the rowing technique, learn boat-handling skills and discover the joys of rowing as a crew. In addition, it also focuses on both individual and crew skill development in order to get maximum enjoyment and introduce you to the sport of rowing.

Rowing is a diverse sport offering different types of rowing opportunities, both on and off the water.

The programme offers to the students one land session per week in the old gym, where the students get to use indoor rowing machines, as well as one or two water sessions per week at St Paul’s Rowing Club located at Days Park.
