Open Water Rowing in a Stunning Location

Are you an intermediate to experienced rower with solid on-the-water experience? Are you into rowing hard--and in all kinds of conditions? Then the Hale & Hardy Workout Row is for you! For individuals only, ages 14 and up. We'll focus on a steady row with power that gets the heart rate up, provides solid resistance and strength training and gives you a GREAT full-body workout. Excellent technique and form will be emphasized. Other skills-building includes navigation. Total on the water time is approximately an hour. Rowers must have demonstrable skills and experience rowing in open water rowing and comfortable rowing in varying wind and weather conditions, including choppy seas and strong headwinds. The Hale & Hardy Workout Row is offered early mornings throughout the summer. Wonderful way to start your day! Other times may also be available--please inquire. Your row begins with a safety talk, reviewing the different parts of the boat, going over rowing commands and getting seated properly and comfortably. Lifejackets (PFDs) are required to be worn on the boat and docks. DWR will provide these--however, if you have your own PFD, please bring it. Dress appropriately for the weather (translation: layers!). Temps vary in the warmer months and the wind can be brisk. Wear comfortable synthetic, silk or wool layers, wind resistant outerwear and footwear appropriate for the conditions. Feel free to bring rowing gloves, if you'd like, though these are not required. Do bring water to stay hydrated. Sunscreen is also advised. WEATHER AND DWR CANCELLATION POLICY: Safety is DWR's top priority. Rows are weather dependent. DWR will go out in a variety of weather conditions, including light to moderate wind, some chop or swell, fog, rain and snow. DWR's client cancellation policy applies--please review. A special discount is available for booking four Hale & Hardy rows! Choose the "Hale & Hardy 4-Pack" pricing plan before check-out--or visit the Pricing Plans page via the site menu and choose the appropriate plan. For newer rowers looking to build skills and gain on-the-water experience, please see "Row a Wooden Dory Boat" and "Learn to Row 4-Pack!" Look forward to rowing with you!
