Rowing Experience Events

From a relatively relaxing paddle on the river to a fiercely competitive day of games culminating in an Oarsome Regatta with medal ceremony, our events are designed to meet your needs.

Wellbeing Workshops

Always Oarsome is not just about rowing on the water (although this is the best bit), but we also take the lessons we’ve learnt on the water to deliver workshops which can be delivered elsewhere.

We also offer a range of wellbeing focused workshops which can be delivered to your teams at your own premises.
