Skiffing Section


ADULT SKIFFING 2017

 

Get Out On The River!


Get trained and then practise your skiffing skills.

WBC run a number of Training Courses for Skiffers

Once you have been approved as a skiffer you should take opportunities to get out on the river as often as your busy lives allow. 


There are a number of people who skiff on weekday mornings for an hour normally starting at 8.40 a.m. 

The number varies from three to eight so we just get out as many boats as we need. 

The river is lovely in the morning and normally very peaceful. 

This is great exercise and suitable for skiffers of all standards. 


On most of these outings there is at least one experienced person who can provide a bit of coaching or assistance if you need it. 

All skiffers are very happy and willing to support someone who needs it. 

We have all been there! 

The whole thing is low key and very sociable. 

Any Junior Approved skiffers can come to the club on Sunday mornings/afternoons after the  courses and will be able to take the skiffs out


We know there is some demand for evening and weekend sessions as well, which can easily be arranged.


Each week we issue a Google document where members can put their names down against specific time slots. If you prefer a different time try adding that to the list and see if anyone else can join you.


Clive Dow is responsible for co-ordinating the skiff section, with a lot of help from other volunteers. If you have any questions about skiffing and access to the boats, then please email info (at) wargraveboatingclub.co.uk marking your email for the attention of Clive Dow.


See you on the river

 

Any Junior Approved skiffers can come to the club on Sunday mornings/afternoons after the above two courses and will be able to take the skiffs out. Crews and coxes will need to be organised by themselves.
