Oar Training

Oar Training

These courses are designed for private boaters that want to gain rowing skills to eventually take their own boat out on fun trips. Basic maneuvers, rigging a boat, and reading water are some of the skills that will be covered. We even offer an overnight component that will teach you everything you need to know about packing and planning for multi-day trips on your boat. Private instruction available anytime, year round.
