You will: 
Learn how to row both on ergometers (rowing machines) and with experienced rowers on the water

What happens after the session? 
If you’d like to take a class to learn even more about rowing and continue to work on rowing on the water, we’ll have information available about our up-coming classes. After gaining a basic level of proficiency you’ll also have the option to become an on-going member of the Lake Merritt Rowing Club or even join one of our teams!
