Masters Representative

There will be one LTS class offered this year, starting on May 7 from 12-2 pm for the next six consecutive weekends.  Other classes may be added if the demand is present and additional instructors are available.


Cost: $150 for WBC members, $200 for non-members. However, if non-members opt to join the club after completing the LTS class, $50 will be credited toward their annual dues.

Class Format

Participants: This is limited by the number of recreational single sculls available, and
limits us to 4 people at this time.


Duration: 6 consecutive weekends, Sat and Sun from 12:00 - 2:00 pm, including a weekend added for makeup sessions. The first 4 sessions are on land, the remainder are on the water.

Class Scope:

  • Sessions 1-2: Learn and practice the basic rowing motion using rowing machines; optional for those with prior rowing experience.

  • Session 3: Presentation on club rules, local hazards, rowing safety, maritime rules of the road, weather, tides, navigation, and basic hydrodynamics (how to make a boat move). When you are rowing in a 1-person boat, you are the boat’s captain, navigator, helm, engine, and you’re facing backwards. The first weekend prepares you to be the engine, this presentation helps you prepare for the rest.

  • Session 4: Learn and practice sculling technique using dockside scullers

  • Sessions 5-10: Water sessions to practice maneuvers

  • Session 6: Intentionally flip the boat and re-enter it (aka the “flip test”)

  • Session 10: Sculling Level I certification

  • Sessions 11-12: makeup dates if needed


Let Bob know if you’d like to enroll in the class and he will verify your slot in the class.  First come, first served after Jan 1, 2022.  He will reconfirm with you about 4 weeks prior to the class start date so you can sign up in iCrew.
