“18 months ago I needed to do something about getting active as my dodgy old footballing knees wouldn’t allow me to do a lot of excercise so I did a Murdoch Rowing Club Learn to Row course and was instantly hooked. Under the expert guidance of Peter Briggs I quickly learned the basics and joined the club straight after the course finished. Within a few months after regularly doing social rowing where my technique naturally improved from rowing with experienced rowers I decided to get a bit more serious. I started training two days a week as well as Saturday mornings and before I knew it I was racing in regattas and even rowed in the Australian Masters rowing championships in June 2010.
“I have lost 22 kilos, made lots of new friends and rowing has given me a whole new lease on life.”Ian Winfield (56) – Nedlands
“About 20 years ago I did a small amount of rowing at school in Victoria and a couple of years ago I decided to do the Murdoch Learn to Row course as a refresher. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and since then I am a regular rower at regattas and at social rowing.”Bill Ogburn (42) – Cannington
“A few years ago somebody suggested I consider rowing as a form of exercise so I gave the Murdoch Learn to Row course a go. Peter & Steph were particularly helpful and knowledgeable and were very empathetic with the flexibility limitations of a 68 year old woman. Rowing for me is now the only exercise I do as it is very gentle on the body whilst giving me a good work out. I really recommend this course to anyone who is getting on in years.”Jennie Hunt – Como
