The new rowing programme is aimed at anyone aged 14 to 84 who wants to get involved in rowing to get fit in a fun way.

Centre manager Fergus Lynch said: “This is a really exciting venture offering recreational rowing to the community of Sunderland. Rowing is an excellent way to keep fit for all ages.”

The programme starts with a two-hour taster session. Those who want to further develop their rowing skills can undergo a “learn to row” course.

Once people have completed the programme, they will be allowed to join Adventure Sunderland’s rowing club and have continued access to sessions throughout the year.

Taster sessions cost £10. To book or for more information call 514 4721 or email mac.info@btconnect.com
