North Berwick Rowing Club (NBRC) are excited to announce the launch of their first ever Skiff Camp for 14-17 year olds. In response to Scottish Government Covid guidelines indicating resumption of outdoor contact sports for 12-17 year olds on Monday 5 April, NBRC are inviting the young people in their community to be first to dip their toes back in the water after lockdown.
The Skiff Camp will consist of four coached rowing sessions, to take place at North Berwick on 5, 7, 9 and 11 April from 11am. The final session will involve an excursion to the nearby islands to view some wonderful wildlife. The aim of the Camp is to introduce rowing to a group of North Berwick youngsters in an enjoyable way. The entire group will be competent at boat handling and skiff rowing by the end of the week. After the Camp they will have an idea as to whether skiff rowing is something that they would like to pursue further. Those that wish to continue will have the opportunity to enjoy future competitions and expeditions, right through to representing their town at the Skiffieworlds 2022.
