“Masters Classes” – Would you like to row but feel your age might be a handicap? Worry no more! AKR is pleased to announce that Coach Marlene Royle will offer classes for our older rowers so they can improve their technique and skills in this lifelong sport. We begin the program on Monday and Wednesday mornings at the Marina at 7.45am. To join this program, you must have taken one of our introductory programs such as a Learn to Row or had a Private Lesson so that you will have a good idea that you wish to pursue rowing. Then become a member of AKR and you can sign up for a Masters Class. Better still, do this with a friend or friends. Please Text Gabby Smith for details and to book. 1 647 448 7640. Price $80 per outing.
