After mastering the rowing stroke and the Hudson, students may wish to experience rowing a “Quad” – a narrower, lighter, more responsive racing shell.

Like the Hudson, four rowers scull in unison; however, there are added challenges of additional balance and no coxswain – rowers must learn to steer the boat using their feet.

Prerequisites:
1. Completed Hudson class with coach’s recommendation to advance
2. Thorough understanding and ability to “set the boat”
3. Proficient at rowing technique, drills and workouts
4. Willingness to learn “toe-steering” at bow seat
