We hold several learn to row programs throughout the year. These are two-week programs to learn the basics of rowing and handling of the boat. In addition, we also hold a one-day free Learn to Row Program, which takes place across the country, in June. Don’t miss your chance to try something new. Limited spots available. Sign up today!
