summer learn to row level 2

 

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

This on the water class is self-paced, and gives you opportunity to improve your rowing skills. Our coaches are available to help you practice rowing skills in a non-competitive learning environment. Practice to improve your techniques and just row for fun.

A coach or staff are available at the boat storage site/rowing dock to assist you with your equipment. Coaches provide general rowing instructions from the safety launch.  The practice rowing area extends from the Megunticook Rowing rowing dock to the Fang Island narrows.  A longer row to the Fernald’s Neck road may be organized with the safety launch driver. Open to all who have completed the Learn to Row Level 1 Class or have comparable beginner (or higher) experience.

You can take the Learn to Row Proficiency Test when you feel confident to graduate to a Novice Rower.  In preparation you should view the USRowing safety video.

Sign up by making a reservation for the day you would like to row. This class is available daily from 7:30 - 9am, beginning June 24, 2019 through August 9, 2019.
