IMPORTANT SAFETY MEASURES: An instructor with coach boat and life jackets will be on the water with each rowing shell. While out in shells all participants will be required to wear "Banana Type" life preservers which are provided. Safety is our number one priority and windy days are considered to be unsafe for rowers. We will endeavour to provide quality time for students on these days.
