Corporate Rowing Season Starts May 2!

Want to experience Wellington harbour as you’ve never done before, learn to row, find out how to use an erg machine properly, get fit and make new friends? Join Wellington Rowing Club for the corporate season!  

The Corporate Rowing Challenge is a three-month programme designed specifically for adults and you don’t need to be fit or have any previous rowing experience to join. You can come along as a pre-formed  team, or on your own, and we’ll put you in a team. 

The programme kicks off with a welcome briefing on Sunday 2 May at the Wellington Rowing Club. The  Clubhouse is located on Taranaki wharf, next to Whairepo Lagoon. This is a great way to find out more  about the programme and it would be great for us to meet you, especially if you’re joining for the first  time. It is an opportunity to ask questions and become familiar with the club and how the Corporate  Rowing Challenge works. The welcome briefing starts at 2.30pm in the Club’s upstairs function rowing.
