Registration is now open for the Dayton Boat Club masters (adult) learn-to-row course Friday through Sunday, Sept. 10-12, 2021. The course schedule is:
Fee for the on-water course is $100 per person. Participants learn safety, boat handling, and the proper stroke technique, starting on a rowing machine. Participants are on the water rowing with teammates by day 2.
Participants must be able to lift 30 pounds overhead and be able get into and out of the boat without help (comparable to standing up from a seated position on the ground without getting on one's knees). For the class, participants should wear comfortable but not loose-fitting clothes. Bring a water bottle, a small towel, and a pair of socks to wear in the boat.
Those who wish to join the club's novice rowing program after the course will have their learn-to-row fees deducted from the season's dues. (Novice dues are typically $250 per season without the discount.)
