The Dayton Boat Club adult rowing program (also known as "Masters") will hold its spring learn-to-row program Friday through Sunday, April 21-23.
* 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 21
* 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 22
* Noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, April 23
Fee is $100 per person.
Prior to rowing on water, participants learn safety, boat handling, and the proper stroke technique, starting on a rowing machine, also called an "erg" (short for ergometer). Participants are on the water rowing with teammates by day 2.
The learn-to-row class is held at the Dayton Boat Club boathouse on East River Road in Moraine, just south of the Mandalay Banquet Center and Orbit Crane.
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 fee deducted from the season's dues.
To pay the fee, go to the Adult Registration page and scroll down to "PayPal" under Payment Methods (You don't have to fill out the registration form on that page).
