This is a guide to tell you some useful things before you go on your first outing. It outlines what your role is in the boat and gives standard commands that are generally used in KCBC. I hope you will find this informative and useful - if you've any questions don't hesitate to ask one of the senior member of the club or your coach if you are on the water.

Before you go out with your novice crew we will try and make sure that you go out in a tub (it is, literally) with a couple of rower and a coach so you get a hang of the commands and steering. Don't feel that you have to memorise this whole document, as there is quite a lot in it, but use it in the future for reference. You'll be surprised at how quickly you pick it up with practice.
