CAPE CORAL, Fla.- The Cape Coral Rowing Club is inviting the public to experience the joy of rowing today from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at their facility at Cape Harbour Marina.

Interested participants will be introduced to a sport which is enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness abilities; no previous rowing experience is necessary.

The free event will include a tour of the facility and you can learn the parts of a rowing shell. You'll also get a Concept II Ergometer demonstration, experience the ergometer while learning the body movement in a rowing shell and learn basic rowing commands.

National Learn to Row Day is the ideal opportunity for someone to learn about the sport of rowing in a relaxed and fun environment without the commitment of joining a club or purchasing equipment.
