Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our friends.
Training takes place at the Jes Rowing club, using its facilities and our new recreational (aka touring) boat, which resembles what former rowers would call a wherry but is much more streamlined.
Your annual subscription of €120 will be used to to fund equipment for use by both CIRC and CRNI. Recreational rowers can train up to four or five times a week, with each training session lasting approximately 1 hour.
The Jes rowing club was founded in 1934 and has been at its current site at Earl's Island within the grounds of the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway) since the early nineteen fifties. The club enjoys excellent facilities, easy parking, a modern fleet of high-quality racing and touring (recreational) boats, and is very lucky to have some top-class coaches.
Some comments by adults, new to recreational rowing:
It's addictive - I love it!
Rowing is not as physically tiring as I thought it would be - but it's surprisingly technical. You've lots to work on and it's really rewarding because you instantly feel the difference when you get something right.
It's absolutely lovely on the water. So enjoyable!
