Now in its twenty-second year, Henry Hamilton's Vermont Sculling School teaches sculling as a lifetime skill for men and women of all ages.

2011 Program. This season we are offering small-group sculling instruction in one to five day sessions for novice through top level scullers on Little Hosmer Lake in Craftsbury Common in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. The usual enrollment is from three to five days, but students may choose to enroll for any number of days. Little Hosmer Lake is a very peaceful setting for sculling. There is virtually no motorboat traffic and a largely pristine, undeveloped shoreline.

Novice applicants should have a minimum of 15 miles on-water sculling experience

Beginners are welcome to arrange one on one private instruction at other times during the summer.

Novices are encouraged to learn in stable open-water type single sculling boats. They quickly gain confidence and a relaxed attitude which helps them learn the body control and bladework required to move into the narrower racing shells.

High performance racing shells are available for more experienced students. Many advanced scullers bring their own equipment, which may be used in the daily demonstrations of the mechanics of rigging. 

Our goal is to guide students toward the benefits of fitness and flexibility while we share the exhilaration of their progress toward more efficient and faster sculling.


One day $105; three days $300; four days $390; five days $475

A non-refundable deposit of $105 will secure enrollment

Private instruction or rigging: $75 per hour
