Testimonials

I wish I had done it sooner …

MURC Testimonial - Ian“About 18 months ago I needed to get seriously active as my dodgy old footballing knees wouldn’t allow me to do a lot. 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 of regularly participating in 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. I have lost 22 kgs, made lots of new friends and rowing has given me a whole new lease on life.” Ian W. – Nedlands


MURC Testimonials - Bill“About 20 years ago, I did a small amount of rowing at school in Victoria. A few years ago I decided to do the MURC “Learn to Row” course as a refresher. I thoroughly enjoyed it and ever since I am a regular rower at training, regattas and social rowing, I can’t get enough.” Bill O. – Cannington


MURC Testimonials - Jenny“A few years ago somebody suggested I consider rowing as a form of exercise, so I gave the MURC “Learn to Row” course a go. The instructors, 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 H. – Como
