Learn To Row at The Essendon Rowing Club

  What is rowing?

Rowing is an old sport, developed on the River Thames in England during the Eighteenth Century, and it is an Olympic Sport with representation in all of the Games of the modern era.

Rowing boats are the fastest muscle powered craft on the water, and are not to be confused with canoes, dragon boats, surf boats etc.

Why row?

First, it is an excellent way to get, and stay, fit, involving a unique combination of load-bearing and aerobic exercise.

Secondly, it is the purest team sport. In some sports it is possible for one team member to have a good event and for a colleague to have a bad performance in the same event - not so in rowing. Where do you think we get the expressions ‘all in the same boat’ or ‘all pull together’?

Thirdly, it’s fun!
