Learn to Row Day is a great way to try rowing and experience the fun! The 2019 schedule is Saturday, May 4, June 1, and August 10. These days are free community events and open to the public. Learn to Row day activities include:
Each Learn to Row group learns the basics of sweep rowing in eight- and four-person rowing shells, and also has the opportunity to try sculling. There are also opportunities for friendly competition at the conclusion of each class!
