    My name is Marisa Hayes. I am interested in joining your rowing club. I used to cox for both Lourdes high school and FDR high school. I also coxed juniors and masters programs with HRRA. I’m 23 and looking to get back into rowing but as a rower too instead of a full time coxswain. If not for this summer than for next spring season? I’d love more information. I live in Germantown now so Rondout seems like a better fit for me than my old boathouse. I look forward to hearing from you.
