A rowing course for beginners, consisting of three sessions, will enable participants to acquire the basic skills needed to undertake their first outings on the lake.


The lakeside area of Gandria, where the cost of the sports service is held, is particularly spectacular and allows participants to have an unprecedented view of the coastline.


The activity is intended for those with no or little rowing experience; the only essential skill is knowing how to swim. The aim is to learn the basic technique and make the first outings on the lake in the boats intended for beginners. 

For those who would like to continue with advancement courses or are looking for a club to train with on a regular basis, we recommend contacting Brayan Maccgnan to get all the relevant information.

Rowing requires a minimum of physical fitness and coordination, so we recommend that the untrained first do some fitness training. In this regard, we would like to remind you of our fitness Sports Hall at the Lugano East Campus as well as the "Classes and Games" programmes in Lugano and Mendrisio.


The rowing course is spread over three lessons conducted by instructors from the Ceresio rowing club in Gandria.
