Due to the many positive reactions of participants in previous winter training programmes, SaarRowingCenter will again be running a training programme in Duisburg-Wedau over the winter in 2017/2018. This programme is aimed at scullers looking to put in some dedicated work to improve their technique and fitness in a single or double scull. The aim is to prepare rowers to race the Scullers’ Head or the Doubles’ Head on the river Amstel in Amsterdam. The actual decision to race is, of course, all up to you.
The winter training programme is open to advanced or experiences scullers who are able to row comfortably in a single or double scull even in winter. Beginning single scullers can work on their technique in a one-person tub or training scull (C1 boat).

Location and accessibility
In Duisburg-Wedau, we are the guests of Duisburger Ruderverein. Duisburger RV is located along the 2k regatta course in the centre of Wedau, and has excellent rowing facilities. Duisburger Ruderverein in Wedau can easily be reached by car: the town is conveniently located close to several motorways and there is ample parking space nearby.
Our rowing water
The Wedau regatta course has a separate 1800 m warm up lane to the start. This sheltered warm up lane, with a coaching path alongside, is our training water – ideal for coached rowing.
Participants will be rowing in a single or double scull from SaarRowingCenter. Of course, you are welcome to use your own single or double instead, if you prefer. Beginners in the single will be rowing in a C1 training scull from Duisburger Ruderverein.
There is also the option to do one or more sessions in Amsterdam and one or more in Duisburg-Wedau. For more information about the winter training programme in Amsterdam, please click here.
