    What to expect on your first row:

    On the first time you come rowing at the Boston Rowing Center, you’ll be given the “Cheap and Dirty” rowing lesson where you’ll learn why women are naturally better rowers than men.

    The lesson includes:

    • Safety
    • Basics of rowing
    • Boat/rowing related vocabulary
    • Moving around in the boats

    You might get a little history, or some rowing stories too.

    We’ll then head out in one of our coxed boats.

    You can bring personal things with you in the boat.

    Or we can lock them safely.

    A backpack is handy but not necessary.

    After we cast off and get familiar with the motions, we’ll practice a bunch of drills to practice our stroke and timing.

    That’s it, you’re a rower now!

    From then on, it’s just a matter of getting used to the motion and enjoying your surroundings.
