Mandatory Safety Classes

Orientation

New this year will be a free but mandatory 90-minute Orientation for all adult rowers operating out of HMC. Participants must attend an Orientation session once every 12 months. Orientations will be held throughout the year at the start of each season or when there are enough participants. The Orientation will cover a variety of topics such as safe operations on the harbor, boat handling, and HMC related procedures and practices. As part of this Orientation you will be required to independently watch the U.S. Rowing safety video. A swimming self-certification form will be provided at the orientation class.

Please note: The swim self-certification prerequisite will be explained at Orientation. Definitions regarding skill level will be coming soon to our website. In the meantime, if you have questions about your skill level please email us at contact@hinghammaritime.org.

Skill Level: All
Prerequisites: None

Captain’s Test

For intermediate and advanced scullers who wish to scull on their own, we will be holding a Captain’s Test. The Captain’s Test is a skills and knowledge based evaluation to be sure that a participant can successfully and safely complete common tasks while operating out of HMC. Participants must pass this test to row independently on the harbor or participate in select singles based activities. The test is approximately 30 minutes long, supervised by an HMC rowing coach.

The test criteria are available here.

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Prerequisites: Orientation, Swim self-certification
Instructor: Sarah Dewey, Lindsey Buchleitner, Sara Miller

 

Our Classes

Coached classes at HMC are offered over 6 weeks this spring, with the exception of Learn to Row which is 3 weeks in length. The classes are typically held 2 or 3 times a week. Registration is for the entire 6- or 3- week period as indicated.

Learn to Row

This class will teach participants the basics of sculling in our singles. Rowers will learn the basic stroke, commands, how to handle equipment, and more. Learn to Row classes will have free Logbook erging access to work on form and strength while not on the water.

The Learn to Row class is 3 weeks in length.

Skill Level: Beginner
Prerequisites: Orientation, Swim self-certification

Coached Workouts in Coastal 4x+s

This class will be taught in Coastal 4x+s tailored to participant ability. Classes will emphasize technique, strength, and speed training for intermediate to advanced scullers.  Technique drills will be taught along with training “pieces” to build speed and endurance.

Please note: In an effort to accommodate rowers’ requests to form their own boats, we initially will only be accepting registrations from full crews of five people. Each group should designate a boat captain who needs to register on Bookeo. We will reach out to that person for the names of and contact information for the remaining four crew members. We will reach out to those individuals to complete the registration process for each of them individually. After we have processed the full boats, we will open up the class for individual scullers. If you are not part of a full crew, please sign-up for the waitlist to be notified when spots become available. Please email contact@hinghammaritime.org if you’d like additional details.

Our Clinics

Coach led clinics are for HMC scullers who successfully passed the Captain’s Test. The clinics are to improve their technique for recreation or competitive rowing. A coach will work with rowers of various skill levels to help them achieve fitness goals and technical improvement. Each clinic consists of a combination of technique, drills, and pieces. Class sizes are small to allow for more time between coach and participants. Unlike our coached classes, clinics may be registered for individually. Sign-up for the entire series or just one!

Logbook Programs

Our logbook programs provide the community the opportunity to exercise down on the wharf or take one of our boats for a row, without a coach present. Logbook programs are self-directed activities whose purpose is to allow flexible access to the waterfront and harbor.

Logbook Sculling

This spring we will be offering Logbook Sculling. Logbook Sculling is an opportunity to get out on the harbor for a row or a workout, without a coach, using our singles, doubles, and quad fleet. Logbook Sculling slots are available for use when our coached programs are not utilizing our equipment. On days when the weather prevents on-the-water practice, free Logbook Erging will be offered as a substitute on a first-come first-served basis.

Logbook Sculling will be offered in a pass format or at a daily drop-in rate for additional flexibility. Please note that a booking will always be required for pass holders and drop-ins. Bookings will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Please read the cancellation policy in Bookeo.
