Dover Rowing Club opened their doors (shutters) to welcome Dover Grammar School for Girls for a two day introductory rowing camp this week. 120 pupils experienced rowing for the first time by participating in a structured but fun program involving circuit training, ergo (rowing machine), team races and rowing in Dover Harbour in the club’s racing fours.
The camp was facilitated by volunteers from Dover RC and organised by the club’s committee and Safety Officer. The club would particularly like to thank the younger members involved, Ella Day, Jade Jordon, Rebecca and Tom Stothart, and hope to see many of the DGSG students again in the future. Anyone, young or older, interested in taking up rowing should contact the club via the website or Facebook page.
