UVRF has a number of Vespoli and Peinert racing singles and an assortment of recreational singles for members to use, starting in June. You can pay a seasonal equipment usage fee and choose from a pool of racing and recreational singles. This option allows you to use certain club doubles as well. Alternatively you can do a monthly or seasonal rental of one boat and one set of oars. Members who have been certified also have access to premium doubles and quads. For more information, visit the Sculling/Boat Rentals page of our website!
UVRF has 50 outdoor racks available at Kendal Riverfront Park for owners of private singles and doubles in 2021. To qualify, you must be a member of UVRF and register on the website. Once you have registered, you will receive a rack assignment. The cost of a rack rental is $250.
Are you new to rowing or have you been away from it for a while? Learn how to get the most out of your Indoor Rowing Machine in this hour-long video from coach Linda Muri. You will learn how to sit properly on your erg and position your feet for maximum comfort. The complete rowing stroke from the catch, through the drive to the finish, and through the recovery back to the catch is shown along with proper (and improper) body positions along the way. An overview of the Concept 2 performance meter is also given for those who want to keep track of their workouts and learn how to coach themselves to better form.
UVRF is pleased to offer Virtual Erg Workouts (VEWs) from January through May, 2021. The workouts are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 6:30 to 7:30 AM using zoom. Recordings of each workout are also available for people who cannot make the 6:30 start time. The weekly pattern consists of steady-state or low intensity workouts on Monday, medium to medium-hard workouts on Wednesday and short, hard intervals on Friday.
Follow along or just row at your own pace, picking up a steady stream of technique tips along the way. Bike ergs are also welcome! Two 10-week sessions (30 workouts each) are offered with a one week break in between.
Session 1: Monday, Jan. 4 - Friday, Mar. 12
