The “Learn-to-Row” Day held by the North Rockland Rowing Club, sponsored by U.S. Rowing, was held down at the Haverstraw Ferry Landing on Saturday, June 5th. At least 50 new rowers showed up this year, and they were all able to try the rowing machines and go out on the water in the crew shells. It was a great day of learning and exposure to the sport!
There has been great interest in the sport and the Rowing Club from many Haverstraw residents and other Rockland County natives. Feel free to contact the Rowing Club at (845) 942-1030, and ask for Susan or Jerry. Also, visit the website at www.northrocklandrowingclub.org ! It’s VERY fun and rowing exercises the entire body!

A bit of trivia:

Thank you so so much for showing me how to row! I LOVE IT!
