The 6th class boys were given a tour of Shandon Boat Club before going out on the water to put their rowing skills to the test. They learned about different types of boats and different categories of rowers. They heard about the importance of the Boat Club, the training and dedication required to be a successful rower and the diet of a rower.
The boys were divided into groups and wet out on the water to practice their rowing skills. There was a lot of teamwork and focus required. Despite the weather, the boys really enjoyed their time out on the water.
