This Saturday June 6 is National Learn to Row day at rowing clubs across the country. If you are interested in trying on-water rowing, this is your chance to do so in a safe introductory environment.
Locally in northern New Jersey, Nereid Boat Club is hosting a program, and provided a description as follows:
Rutherford, New Jersey: Nereid Boat Club is holding its 10th annual free National Learn to Row Event on Saturday, June 6, 10am – 1pm. This event is open to everyone, reservations are not required, and it is free – there is no charge for any activities.
Participants can tour the Nereid Boathouse, learn about the care and maintenance of rowing shells, and get an instructional practice session on a rowing erg.
