In this class students will begin their adventure into open boat rowing. The class will begin with on shore instruction covering the basics of rowing traditional boats with time spent on how to ensure a safe outing. The class will then head down to the Rondout creek to launch boats. We will then practice rowing in the vicinity of our waterfront with an instructor close by on the dock or in a safety boat. As skill and time allow we will then go for a short row up the creek and view the Kingston waterfront just as someone may have a century ago, from a boat powered only by its occupants. Boats used for this class are traditional wooden row boats that are 10-14 feet long and hold 1-2 people per boat.register at
