Learn to Row

New to Learn to Row 2019 is the three day/week model. This structure will allow us more time teach the fundamentals and preparing participants for what is to come after learn to row. We encourage you to attend all classes, but understand that life and other obligations may get in the way. The first few classes will be on land and on the dock to learn the techniques and skills needed to row safely. You will work out on rowing machines (“ergs”) to learn the rowing stroke, rowing drills, and coxswain commands that will be used in the boat. You will also learn about the boathouse, rowing vocabulary, and all the tasks that need to happen to get safely onto the water. Weather permitting, you will spend the rest of your time rowing in different sized boats, from big to small, and will try both sculling (two-oar rowing) and sweep (single-oar rowing). All the techniques and skills you learned will be put into play on Lake Whatcom, where you will soon come to appreciate the amazing environment we enjoy at WRA. Exercise and eagles all in one.
