Our school learned rowing with Ellen in Blackrock. We used rowing machines which is actually a lot tougher than it looks. It was challenging but enjoyable. We got really fit in a short time (6 weeks). The first day we had sore muscles.
Then we participated in a rowing blitz in Neptune. I ,Lucy, was on the school media team with Suan so I interviewed people about rowing. The actual competition on the blitz day was seriously tough but we did really well. Felix had the fastest time overall. Overall we all enjoyed the rowing a lot and would love to do it again. In Neptune we also did workshops about water safety and learned what to do if we see someone in trouble in the water.
