Rough Water Clinic 18 March 2018

For experienced OWRC rowers the Rough Water Clinic is an exciting step into the wider and wilder part of open water rowing. San Francisco bay is justifiably famous for it’s breezes and tidal currents, both of which will create rough water conditions. That’s why we train our rowers to handle these conditions with confidence, and many enjoy the challenge and excitement of the Bay’s varying conditions.

The next Rough Water Clinic is Sunday 18 March 2018 from 9am-Noon.
