All sweep rowing suspended until it is safe for us to be in boats together again.

Learn to Row!

Since we can’t put team boats on the water, we are instead offering an opportunity to learn to row on land, on ergometers (rowing machines).  This will be a 4-week mini-session of 1-hour classes, Saturdays 10:30am-11:30am, for a flat fee of $50.  After completion, participants will be able to join on-land erg classes with our experienced rowers to continue to learn.  We hope to eventually allow you to transfer those skills to rowing on the water!

Minimum of 4 participants, maximum of 8.  Payment by cash/check only, payable at first class.  Use the product below to register — you will then receive additional instructions on enrollment/waivers and the Google doc we use for attendance.

Due to the pandemic, we are unable to offer learn-to-row in boats, but we can still teach you how to row! This class will be held on ergometers (rowing machines), outdoors, at the RBC boathouse in Fairport, 10 W. Liftbridge Ln. You will learn the basics of the rowing stroke and will get oriented to the boathouse and boats. Upon completion, you will be eligible to participate in on-land classes with our experienced rowers. When we are able to offer learn-to-row on the water, you will have priority to participate.

Classes will be 10:30am-11:30am on Saturday mornings.

Class dates: Sat 7/25, Sat 8/1, Sat 8/8, Sat 8/15
