National Learn-to-Row Day

National Learn-to-Row Day

Summer is here, the weather is great and it’s time to try something you’ve never attempted before: rowing.

Join Row New York for National Learn to Row day on June 3rd, 2017, for a totally free event, and learn the basics of a sport that will stay with you for a lifetime. We’ll introduce you to basic rowing techniques and get you out on the water.

Bonus: explore our beautiful boathouses on tours being offered throughout the day. You can choose from two of our boathouse locations: the Meadow Lake Boathouse in Queens and the Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse in Manhattan. Our Queens boathouse invites any person with a disability to join us for adaptive rowing sessions.

Those interested in participating can simply stop by either of our boathouses for this family-friendly event at the following times for land-based and water-based rowing sessions and boathouse tours (rowing sessions run between 40-60 minutes)

For a more comfortable day, please consider wearing clothing that you can get wet or dirty, and keep in mind that form-fitting clothing, like spandex or yoga pants, are much less likely to get in the way during rowing.

WHEN: Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

TIME: 10:00am - 1:00pm

WHERE: Meadow Lake Boathouse in Queens AND the Peter Jay Sharp Boathouse in Manhattan

Peter Jay Sharpton Boathouse (Manhattan):
