Learn to row at club

GORING Gap Boat Club is offering rowing taster sessions at its new boathouse.

The Go Row classes for anyone over 16 will take place at 10am on the first Sunday of each month, beginning on March 3.

A four-week Learn2Row course for beginners will be held on Saturday mornings at the clubhouse and on Wednesday evenings at Radley College’s rowing tank from April 27. This will be repeated in August.

The club will hold a Mad March Dash on March 17, when its rowers will compete against other local clubs in a series of friendly time trials and skills challenges.

The club moved into its new £350,000 headquarters off the A329 at the start of the year following a lengthy battle to raise funds and secure planning permission. An open day will be held on June 15.

It is now looking for volunteers to clean, maintain and repair its 40 boats as well as periodically tidying the new bank, pontoon and grounds.
