I am writing to let you know that we have finalized the details of our 2018 Learn to Row Program. I have attached the flier with the dates. I have also summarized that information here.
There is a free informational meeting on Monday, May 21st at the Riverport Wooden Boat School (70-86 E Strand St, Kingston, east of the Hudson River Maritime Museum) 6:30p.
The LTR instruction requires two steps. First, on Saturday, June 9th, we will provide an introduction to the basic rowing technique on the rowing machines (ergs) and will introduce the mechanics of a rowing stroke in the indoor rowing in water tanks using 12 foot oars. This instruction will take place at the Caufield Boathouse, West Point, 8:30a-1p. Carpooling will be available.
The 2nd step is coached lessons on the Rondout Creek. We will meet at the Hudson River Maritime Museum docks, Sunday June 10th 8a-12p. Rain date Sat. June 16th.
Participants must pass a swim test at the Kingston YMCA on either 6/4 or 6/5 ($10 fee for non-members of the Y). Details will be provided to LTR registrants.
I will send information regarding sign up for the $150 LTR program shortly.
