  • A small towel
  • An extra pair of socks o wear in the boat

What if you fall in love with it and want to continue? If you want to join the novice rowing program, you’ll have your learn-to-row fees deducted from the cost of the season. So, oridinarily novice’s would pay $250, but if you take the learn-to-row class it’ll only be $150.
