Single scull beginner

Keen to learn to row in a single scull?

If you are able to scull in a one-, two- or 4-person tub (in various countries also referred to as touring gigs, training sculls or C-boats: C1, C2, C4), you are welcome to join one of our beginner’s courses in a single scull. We have developed a specific programme for beginning single scullers. The programme consists of several days; with the help and support from your coach, you will start to feel more confident and improve your technique in a single scull.

The course will start on Day 1 with several short sessions of 15-20 minutes, with intensive personal instruction through 1-to-1 coaching. The coach may use specific exercises to make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed in your boat. At SaarRowingCenter, beginning single scullers are taught how to balance the boat in a natural, relaxed manner. Thanks to the intensive coaching, most students get the hang of this within a day. In the following days, you will learn to stay relaxed while moving the boat forward. Just as importantly, you will learn how to manoeuvre your boat (backing down, turning the boat, landing the boat).

The beginners’ course consists of 7 sessions over 4 consecutive days and is an excellent way to get the hang of the art of single sculling. In our experience, many participants continue to enjoy single sculling when they return to their own club.

Our beginners’ sculling course is held in Dreisbach on the river Saar and in Berlin. The water on both location is sheltered and there is little commercial traffic, making it very well suited for novice single sculling. If there are enough participants, we can also organise the beginners’ course in Seville, where you can find your feet as a single sculler in autumn or spring, usually with a friendly sun shining above.
