Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for our 2021 Spring Working Skills Series, as we offer 3 video discussions on practical nautical skills. This second installment, Let's Go for a Row - From Prep to Return, is geared toward the small boat excursionist. Arista Holden will take the participants on a video discussion of the basics for those going out on the water. From what to bring, checking the wind and tides, tying up at the dock, landing onshore for lunch, and navigating a busy harbor, she’ll go over best practices and pro tips for having a fun, well-prepared rowing experience. After the video, Arista will answer any questions in a Q&A format!
