It’s a chance for those curious about the sport of rowing to explore what life on the water is really all about.

The Winnipeg Rowing Club is hosting its annual open house on Saturday, June 4.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the public can pop in to learn all about the competitive sport or find out more about recreational rowing and tour the facilities.

The club offers programs for all ages and skill levels, including some specifically designed to get beginners up-to-speed, including adult and youth “learn to row” classes. There’s also the Community Rowing Challenge — an eight-week program for businesses, organizations, clubs, groups of friends, or individuals, that gets teams training together in set ‘quads’ (four scullers).

The WRC is located at 20 Lyndale Drive.
