Evening sessions

Evening sessions are included in the cost of the course. They are not mandatory to pass, but we feel it is a great way to bond with other Ocean Rowers, work as a team and gain the best experience possible from this course.  


The evening sessions can be tailored to the course candidate’s needs.

We can organise all kinds of evening sessions such as (but not limited to) talks from ocean rowers about their experience, EPIRB/ PLB registration, more on SSR and MMSI, boat design and selection, rowing technique (Indoor rowers or on the water depending on the weather) We can discuss your needs before the course to ensure the appropriate guest speakers are booked.


The final evening will be a team meal, venue to be confirmed at the start of your course. This is not included in the price and is not compulsory but we this as a great way to bond and make new contacts.

Bringing your own boats

If you would like to get out on the water in the evenings you are welcome to bring your own boat, however we would need to discuss launching and mooring fees with the marina if you are independent or Rannoch Adventure if you are working with them. Please do not launch your boat without ensuring the correct arrangements have been made. If you do not have your own boat yet, we can work with Rannoch Adventure to organise a taster session and boat hire just let us know your requirements.


We look forward to your booking,
