Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between a Liteboat and a Hassle skiff?

A Liteboat is a modern wide stable boat. Ideal to learn and enjoy rowing in a skiff. A Hassle is an smaller polyester boat. It is techniqually more challenging and will go faster!

Do lessons proceed in bad weather?

Yes! Rowing is an outdoor sport that has proceeds in all weather types. Also with rainy and windy conditions. If the weather is so bad that we cannot proceed outside, an alternative program will be organized.

I am going on holiday during the course, but want to row. Is that possible?

With exception of the Skiff beginners course, you can sign up for separate sessions. You then call us on that day (morning from 8:30 am and evening from 4:30 pm) so the head coach can see if there is a place available in a team with the same level of experience. The price of a separate session is €21,- per hour.

When will I receive a confirmation of my registration?

For all skiff courses, when you have paid, you are also directly placed and can participate in the course. A email with all practical information will be sent in advance.

Are there also rowing courses for juniors?

For children aged 10 to 14 years we have special youth rowing courses. You can read more about this under the heading ‘ Youth ‘. In addition we organize in the holidays ‘Splashweken’ for youth.

What is the policy on refunds?

When signing up for the rowing course you agree to the Terms and Conditions. Once you are scheduled for the course there is no refund of the amount possible. The withdrawal of the course is possible up to 2 weeks before the course starts. We will charge an amount of €25,- administration fees in that case.
