From a press release:
“In partnership with US Rowing and Concept2, the Capital Rowing Club will host the 14th annual National Learn to Row Day on Saturday June 6, 2015. National Learn to Row Day is an opportunity for the greater DC community to come out and enjoy a revitalized Anacostia River. The day’s events will take place at the Anacostia Community Boathouse (1900 M St., SE) from 12:00pm – 3:00pm in a fun, safe, pressure free environment. The afternoon will include an introduction to the fundamentals of rowing where you will learn the basics of sweep rowing (a type of rowing when a rower has one oar, held with both hands). People of all athletic abilities are welcomed to participate! Additionally, there will be information on hand about the wonderful programs offered by the Capital Rowing Club ranging from beginner programs for people of all ages to competitive racing for experienced rowers.
National Learn to Row Day was launched to increase visibility of the sport of rowing and create awareness of the health benefits. Competitive and recreational rowers range in age from 12 to 90. It is never too late to give rowing a try. To participate in National Learn to Row Day, follow the registration link (sign up here). Capital Rowing Club is also recruiting volunteers to assist with National Learn to Row Day. If you are interested in volunteering for the event contact [email protected].
