Experience the fun of rowing with a FREE beginners’ taste of rowing during National Learn to Row Day on Saturday, June 6, in Olympia’s Budd Inlet. The event is for high-school age youth and adults.
Thurston County’s local rowing club, Olympia Area Rowing (OAR), will be offering tours of the OAR boathouse, practice on dry land with a cool ergonomic rowing machine, and a 40 minute adventure on the waters of lower Budd Inlet. Participants will be mixed with experienced rowers in a boat of eight people, along with an instructor.
What a great way to kick-off the summer and try something new with this fun exhilarating physical water activity! To participate, visit the OAR boathouse (1022 Marine Dr. NE, 98501) between 9am and 2pm on Saturday, June 6, to sign up for a one-hour slot. Time slots are limited and will be filled on a first come first served basis. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to secure their spot.
A sixteen year-old organization with strong traditions, OAR promotes recreational and competitive rowing for adults and youth in the community, fostering sportsmanship, teamwork, athleticism and camaraderie.
