Learn 2 Row

Learn 2 Row is a one day class designed for anyone who has never rowed and is interested in learning the basics before registering for an extended program.

Program Structure

Classes are held on Sundays from 9a until 12p

For the first hour you’ll be on land. There you’ll spend about 30 minutes learning the basic stroke and proper technique on our Concept2 rowing machines. We then move down to the boats to learn the basic commands you’ll hear on the water, boat safety, how to handle the oars, where your hands should be and how to feather or square the oar blade.

The next two hours are spent on the water! There you’ll learn what to do when you’re not rowing, how stable the boats are, how to keep them level and finally how to row in groups of 4.

For groups, a private Learn 2 Row program can be set up at anytime by contacting Fountain Point Resort at info@fountainpointresort.com.


After completing a Learn 2 Row class, those interested in continuing are encouraged to join our adult beginner program. There you will learn the form, technique and drills needed to row with other members in an 8 person boat.
