Worcestershire people hoping to take to the water for a new challenge can get an oarsome experience at Stourport Boat Club.

The club is launching an adult Learn to Row course based at The Boathouse, Dunley Road, Stourport-on-Severn.

Club coach and Commonwealth Regatta silver medalist, Jane Ryman, said: "We are already making arrangements for the first race experience against Bewdley in a home and away race.

"It will be over a short course and helps everyone experience a taste of what rowing is all about; the team work, the enjoyment of being on the river and sharing stories about your adventure afterwards.

"We have ages from 18 – 70 on this year’s rowing course. So please book your place to join in the fun."

The club is hosting an open evening on Friday May 21 at 6.30pm.
