Rowing

Do you want to practice an integrating sport that also promotes associationism, discipline, and that recovers and promotes a typical Catalan activity? COME ROW WITH US!

 

WHICH ROWING MODALITIES DO WE PRACTICE?

We mainly row with the Llagut: This is a typical Mediterranean boat similar to the Cantabric sea “traineras”. Llagut was initially used for fishing and could be equipped with a Latin sail.

The size of a llagut i approximately 7,5 meters length and 2 meters sleeve. Its weight is about 300 Kg and is made of fiberglass and carbon fiber as well as aluminum. It has 8 oarsmen and a coxswain.

Also, since November 2017 we also row with a COASTAL ROWING boat. It is a 4x boat from EURODIFFUSION’S.

This kind of rowing comes from the Olimpic rowing, but boats are wider and mor estable so they can be used in open sea. This boat’s length is a bit more than 10 meters, and it weights around 150 kg. It has 4 oarsmen and 1 coxwain.

 

WHERE DO WE TRAIN?

The rowing section of Panteres Grogues use the Barcelona International Sailing Center (BISC), right under the big solar panel placed in “Parc del Fòrum”.

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

There is a 55€ monthly fee that includes everything related to rowing (boats, coach, training…). Included in the monthly fee, members have free and unlimited access to BISC installations (gym, spinning room, sauna, showers) while they are opened (from Monday to Sunday; 07:00 to 22:00). There is also free Parking.

In order to train with us, you must first become a member of Panteres Grogues.

 

WHEN DO WE ROW?

Taking into account that rowing is a team sport, we have tried to create a timetable that allows everyone’s participation. We train two days per week (Saturday and Sunday) in three different shifts each day. The shifts are of 90 minutes each.

SATURDAY

First shift          8:30-9:45

Second shift     9:45 – 11:00

Third shift         11:00 – 12:15

Fourth shift       12:15 – 13:30

SUNDAY

First shift          8:30-9:45

Second shift     9:45 – 11:00

Third shift         11:00 – 12:15

Fourth shift       12:15 – 13:30

 

Nevertheless, this timetable may change in order to adapt to the needs of the section.

Also, we train 1-2 times during the week. In winter time we do gym trainings, and in summer time trainings are in the water.

 

LEISURE OR COMPETITION?

Although the rowing activity was initially conceived to be for leisure and non-competitive, the purpose of the 2016-2017 season is to participate in the Llagut catalan League as well as in different national and International coastal rowing competition. 

 

IS ANY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT NEEDED?

There is no special equipment required in order to start rowing.

 

I HAVE NO DOUBT, I WANT TO ROW! CAN I TRY IT FIRST? WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Of course! You can come and try the sport one day for free and without need to become member of Panteres Grogues.

Rowing is a sport that needs no previous experience or physical conditions.
