The Capital Rowing Club
and the Anacostia Community Boathouse Association
are offering free lessons in "sweep rowing"
on Sunday (April 20) from 1 to 4 pm at the boathouses on the Anacostia River nestled between
the 11th Street Bridges on O Street. No reservations are required. Even if you don't want to learn to row, it might be a chance to make a visit to the boathouses
if you haven't been there before. (And, don't worry, they won't be demolished by the upcoming rehabs of the bridges, though the boathouse operations will be moving to the north a couple hundred feet during construction.) If you can't make Sunday's session
, there will be another one on June 7, as part of National Learn to Row Day
