Are you looking for a new activity for the summer and enjoy physical activity while being on the water? The Annapolis Rowing Club offers a Learn to Row (LTR) program to teach and share our love for rowing. Rowing is a full body, low impact sport that uses 86% of your muscle mass. Sweep rowing (as opposed to sculling) is where the rower has one oar and rowers learn to row together in an 8 person rowing shell. We have an exceptional team of coaches that are ready to introduce you to the sport of rowing. If you have an interest in learning to row, or if you have had a long layoff from the sport and would like to refresh your rowing abilities, we encourage you to sign up for LTR now as seats and sessions are limited to 12 participants per session!
Learn to Row is a two-day session held Saturday and Sunday where each lesson is four (4) hours.
As you are learning in an eight-oared shell, this activity is in compliance with Anne Arundel County's, the state of Maryland, and CDC's latest COVID guidelines. Individuals will be instructed on the procedures for cleaning oars, boats, and other equipment.
What will you learn?
During LTR you will learn the following, with the goal to feel more comfortable in a sweep boat and have fun learning how to row:
Introduction to the rowing stroke
Nomenclature and terminology of rowing
Safety equipment and ARC's Rules of the Row
Preparing the boat to row
Launching, rowing, and returning to the dock
Turning, steering, and backing the boat
Mastering timing while rowing in unison with your boat
Weather considerations and traffic patterns on waterways
