There will also be a state-wide ergo competition for non-rowers.

The winners of each category will receive a complementary learn-to-row course from their preferred club.

Eleven clubs will open their doors, including Champion Lakes Boating Club, Curtin University Boat Club, Fremantle Rowing Club, UWA Boat Club, Murdoch Rowing Club, Perth Rowing Club, Swan River Rowing Club and WA Rowing Club.

Timothy Widdicombe from the UWA Boat Club said rowing was the ultimate team sport.

�It offers a complete body workout,� he said.

�The friendship that you gain is strong, because of the training and work you do together.�
