So...you want to Scull?
The rowing you may think of has one rower pulling on one oar. That's called "Sweep" rowing. "Sculling" is when a rower has 2 oars. Each Saturday, we have a class of Scullers that heads out the Mystic River.
This program is designed for those who already know how to row - you would need to complete at least a Learn-to-Row session before signing up for this program. What hull would you row in? GGRC has 4 doubles in our fleet and one coxed quad. (4 Rowers and a coxswain) We also have 2 pairs of pontoons to help you gain confidence while learning to scull. They're pictured to the left.
But what if you already know how to scull?
You are able to join up as well. Each session has 8 seats and the coach will help you to fine tune your strokes!
2016 Season was the first time GGRC had a class that focused completely on sculling. The results have been positive as rowers have learned lessons that have helped them to become better rowers in general!
Stay tuned for dates and times for our small boat program this spring!
