There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

However; many of our members do participate in those classes and our coaching staff also teach the classes.

Youth rowing this year will run from June to September. The goal this year will be to end the season with participation in the Green Lake Extravaganza Regatta. Youth rowing is available to those ages 13 and up.
