ROWING

Rowing 2019

Wanganui is fortunate to have an excellent facility for all year-round rowing. We have an arrangement with the Aramoho Whanganui Rowing Club with approximately 50 students who are able to take advantage of the facilities and coaching.

If you are interested in rowing or becoming coxswain, the sport of rowing could be your choice of activity whilst at WHS. The coxswain steers the boat and gives the crew instruction about their performance.

Practices are on Saturday mornings and three or four evenings per week in summer. In winter coaches run indoor fitness classes where possible. There will also be a 'Learn to Row' programme for new rowers starting in February 2018.

The season starts in September/October and ends in March/April after the Maadi Cup Regatta. Rowers participate in a number of regattas over this time.

Cost: There is the membership fee that students pay to the Aramoho club to cover equipment use and some regatta entries. 
WHS Regatta fees will be invoiced to parents through school.
Fees could vary each year.

Teacher-in-charge:  Mrs L Murphy (murphy.l@whs.ac.nz)
