Would you like to explore the world of rowing?  Learn To Row with the ORU-Masters on Sunday, June 2, 2019. It is different from Dragon Boats, kayaking or canoeing because it uses both the legs and torso. This makes rowed boats much faster.  Our class allows ordinary people of any age or body type to explore this team sport.  (Our equipment is the same as used in the 2016 Olympics or by the Boys In The Boat in 1936. How many times will you be able to learn an Olympic sport?)
