Calm Waters Rowing Camp Schedule

A typical day at Calm Waters consists of three on-the-water rows, one video session and two meals. In short, row, eat, row, eat, row, eat, sleep.

In more detail, it looks like this:


7:00 a.m.  Row, beginning with a talk and demonstration on the dock; this session will also be videotaped
9:30 a.m. Breakfast
10:15 a.m. Video review session  (With a large group, the video will usually go over an hour)
11:30 a.m. Second Row, again begun with a talk and demonstration on the dock before getting on the water
2:00 p.m. Lunch
3:00 p.m. Rest, relax, nap, swim, etc.
4:45 p.m. Third Row, no talk or demo this time, just a chance to continue to work on what was discussed earlier in the day
7:00 p.m. Dinner, provided first night only

 

On arrival day, we will get out on the water that afternoon. We ask you to be here between 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. so there will be time to go over some safety issues, get everyone outfitted with a boat and still have time to row. On the day of departure, we row as usual, have breakfast, go over the video and then depart between 11 a.m. and noon.

While we are very much a technique-oriented camp, you'll have plenty of time over meals or after dinner to talk with John and Charlotte about racing, training, erging or other issues. If there is interest, we will offer a rigging talk and demonstration. If you bring your own boat, we'll be happy to look over the rigging.

At the end of the camp, the group will be given a copy of the DVD, and everyone will receive an embroidered Calm Waters Rowing shirt.
