The LRC offers lessons
in 2003 from June through September. We also have an active
program for students from several high schools, as well as Adaptive
Rowing for people with disabilities. We row a variety of club
boats -- singles, doubles, fours, eights, and pairs -- out of
two boathouses along the Ohio River.
rowing uses all the major muscle groups, it provides a superb workout.
It also offers a
chance to form some great friendships. Rowers get to know the Ohio
in a whole new way: early morning mist rising off the water, the
splash of oars on a crisp autumn afternoon, a heron flapping lazily
by, and at dusk, the red yolk of sun dipping behind a latticework
a perfect combination of the movement within the boat, the
oars stroking through the water, the bodies swinging back
and forth, and you just feel lifted out of yourself. It's
truly a transcendental moment, and it's what makes rowers
fanatical about their sport."
