Looking for rowing club

Postby renosing » Tue, 03 Feb 2009 10:51 pm

Hey,

I am looking for a rowing club (not dragon boat) in Singapore. Anybody knows about one existing?

Thanks,

Renaud.

Hi renosing
If you get any responses pls five me a msg. Im also very much interested in rowing. I have rowed for some years ago (but in a Viking rover) however I’m thinking about rowing something like maybe a duple skuller.

Hope we can find something, would be awesome getting out in the boat in the weekends.
:)

http://www.sara.org.sg/home01.html

So far no reply but will let you know if I do - have either of you had any luck.

Also just moved to SG looking to re-start rowing!

I also tried to contact them a month ago and still no reply. It seems there is no rowing in SIngapore...

Hey there

I'd be up for this to if it could be organized. Used to do a fair bit of rowing (school and then club level while at uni and then recently some corporate events before I left Australia)....I assume we are all talking about "sweep-oar" boats yeah? Not some bastardized dragon or whatever.... that or skulling anyway :wink:

We are talking about the same thing, unfortunately it seems there are no facilities for rowing in SIngapore. It's too bad when you see the flat reservoir and bay with no wind all around the city.

I got a reply finally from the SARA:

"have you checked out our Rowing Association over at 249 Jalan Buroh ( off Pandan Reservoir)? We do have opening for a rowing session on weekdays during office hours (0830hrs-1800hrs) and on weekends (0800-1200hrs)

We do conduct coaching course occasionally in Singapore....but are now more focusing into umpiring courses for interested parties...in preparation for the 2010 YOG..

Seems there is no team as such but you can join for S$300 per year and take boats out when you want during the times above.

So I plan to explore maybe next weekend to see what it's all about. But then if there are four of us we might be able to set something up...I have never sculled before, so also up for that but would need a teacher of the basics!

Have also enquired further about the umpiring courses they are doing for the Youth Olympics

Rowing Club this Sat 25th April

Postby PhilSG » Thu, 23 Apr 2009 11:00 pm

Hi guys.
I'm going down to the boat house this Sat 25th April @ 8.30am - that's when they apparently start.
Anyone keen to join, send me a mail to phil (a) pcpvm.com

I have been to the facilities 1 year ago...nice little lake...

I think there is some room in SG to form a proper rowing club and take organization into our own hands ;-) Don't let the Dragon Boat teams take all the sporty guys and girls! ;-)

Maybe see you there...

I've also been looking for a rowing club because I want to cox again!

I emailed SARA but my email bounced back... Are there any other rowing clubs besides SARA?

learn to row?

Postby carrienooten » Thu, 25 Feb 2010 10:01 am

Hello everybody,

i've just arrived in Singapore, saw your topic and was wondering if you had set up a club since last year?

I'm interested in learning rowing... and saw that there were "learn to row" sessions on the Singapore rowing association calendar every week end. Is it open to public? Does anybody know anything about it?

There are definitly a lot of people who could be interested in rowing - which is definitly not the same thing as dragon boats!

Cheers!

Yes, it is open to the public.
As noted above, they are located at 249 Jalan Buroh (Pandan Reservoir).
You could just go down on the weekend (say ~ 9 AM) and see for yourself.
I believe there may even be a Facebook group - "Singapore Rowing Association."

thx Maneo! i got the coach on the phone, and he told me that the next available session would be in April. Each session lasts 6 weeks, and costs 120SG$. You have to register on their website to receive more information.

It's good news! but I'm still wondering if there's any rowing club at the Kallang Water Sports centre on the Marina Barrage. Does anybody know anything about it?

Yes, there are a lot of people taking the rowing class nowadays.
It's become somewhat busy on the water.

Kallang has dragonboating.
Sentosa has outrigger canoe paddling.
