Welcome to the EUI ROWING

Had enough of the library and the long days staring at your computer screen? Why not get out on the water and join us at EUI Rowing? No matter how fit or unfit you consider yourself and no matter what experience you have or don’t have – everyone is welcome. We are hosted by the wonderful “Società Canottieri” in a prime location on the Arno right beside the Ponte Vecchio. Our training sessions are supervised by an experienced coach and you can expect regular outings on the water. 

We aim at preparing crews and individuals for competitions. Our objective for the 2021/22 season is to get back into racing! We have our eyes set on races in Bruges, here in Florence and on the famous Vogalonga long-distance regatta through the Laguna of Venice. Novices who train regularly throughout the year will be perfectly able to participate.

Finally, rowing is a team sport - our club has a very sociable atmosphere in a mixed group of EUI students and affiliates. Interested? Write to us, join up to our mailing list and follow us on Facebook.


Why Rowing?

Rowing is both a technical sport and a fitness sport. Novice sessions will focus on learning the right movements and achieving a good balance in the boat. Indoor training on the rowing machines (“ergs”) will improve your fitness. We are also a lovely, sociable bunch & the only EUI sports club with their own on-site restaurant and bar!
