Down to the river in boats…

View of the rowing lanes from a couple of weeks ago

Although we won’t be using these lanes on the Schuylkill for awhile yet, remember that Monday, 2/23, it’s time to head to the river! UPDATE: The Conshohocken section of the river is also frozen, so river adventures will be delayed.

Please make sure that you’ve signed your transportation permission form (and other required documents) and returned them to Dick O’Hern. Need a copy? Print one out here on the Team page.

You also recently received an email from Dick with a link to the required US Rowing form.

Transportation is provided on weekdays, but not for weekend practices and regattas. For directions to the Whitemarsh Boathouse, click the Directions page. You’ll find written directions to the boathouse, as well as a live Google map you can use for navigation.

Practice is rain or shine and, until the weather gets more springlike, clothing layers are your friend.

There’s more information in the Team section under Tips for Novices & Their Families.

The Schuylkill River at Conshohocken. Brrr.
