What to wear:  Rowing has many moving parts. Appropriate rowing attire includes snug fitting cloths, so they do not get caught in the rigging. Spandex shorts are best and a tighter fitting shirt.

What to bring:  An extra pair of socks (they will get wet), water bottle, sunscreen and sunglasses.  You may want to bring a change of clothes, lockers rooms with hot showers are available.

Prerequisites:

On the first day of class, you must pass a functional assessment to determine your physical ability to participate safely in these classes. Rowing is a physically demanding and challenging sport to learn and will place a strain on your body.  The boats and equipment are designed such that are able to accommodate persons within a specified range of height, weight, and body size.  In general, the body weight limit is 240 lbs unless well over 6′ tall.  For your own safety, SDRC reserves the right to decline your participation in these classes (in which case you will receive a full refund). Must be able to swim 50 yards in the bay.
