Our schedule is as follows:

Saturday, April 22, 2017, 10am-1pm
Sunday, May 14, 2017, 7am-9:00am

In these classes, you will be taught a brief primer on the fundamentals of rowing and then get on the water with several new and experienced rowers. At the end of the time, Coach Vee guarantees you will be racing against other boats. This course is intended to be just a ‘taste’ of rowing, and, should you be interested in continuing, you will be qualified to move straight into Novice rowing classes the following Monday.

And while you’re at it, take a look at some of these great rowing videos…. what looks interesting? Rowing with a single oar? ¬†Or rowing with two oars? Sweep (one oar) or Scull (two oars?) ¬†Actually, we think you’ll want to try BOTH!
