Learn to Row

Have you ever watched the rowing events in the Olympics and marveled at how fast and smooth they moved the boat through the water? Or have you ever driven along a river or lake and seen rowers moving as one in a shell as it seems to move almost effortlessly through the water and said to yourself, that looks like fun. Like something I'd like to try. Well you can. The Prince William Rowing Club (www.pwrc.org) is hosting the first of their three Learn to Row Days this coming Sunday (April 20) at the Oxford Boathouse in the Lake Ridge Marina from 1 to 3 PM. Club members will be giving tours of the boathouse, teaching the basic rowing stroke on ergs and the barge and finally taking guests out on the water in an actual 8 person shell. Guests will be given an opportunity to row out of the marina cove and out on the Occoquan. Refreshments will be served and it's all free. What a deal! More information is available on the club web page.
