Class: Traditional Rowing 2

Dates: Tuesday, August 2, 5:30pm–8:30pm
Registration Deadline: Saturday, July 2, 2022

Rowing has been pivotal to all working waterfronts for as long as people have taken to the water. Only in the last century was rowing replaced with motors as the main way to move people and goods around harbors and ports. Join us as we return to this tradition with a fun row on the creek.

This class is designed for the returning student who has taken Introduction to Traditional Rowing. There will be much less on shore instruction and more time in the boat rowing. We will choose from our fleet of traditional row boats to meet the class’s needs and experience and hit the water first thing. Once on the water we will head up the historic Rondout creek or head out to the Hudson River, depending on conditions.  An instructor will be with the class the entire time, either rowing along with everyone or nearby in a safety boat. This is a great class to build your traditional rowing skills while getting on the water with an instructor close at hand. Boats used for this class are traditional wooden row boats that are 10-14 feet long and hold 1-2 people per boat.
