Vero Beach Rowing
Acquires First Dragon Boat
Vero Beach Rowing is very pleased to announce that we have recently acquired our first dragon boat, which is like a big war canoe paddled by ten people plus two crew. For novices, this activity is usually easier to master than rowing and is less physically demanding.
Free Training Sessions are scheduled every Saturday at 9:30 am until further notice. Please indicate your interest on the form below to assure yourself a position in the boat. You can also just show up.
Once we have critical mass, we will be scheduling additional practice sessions for those who wish to continue. There are no fees at this time. We are projecting eventual annual fees of $300 per person which will include all use of the dragon boat equipment and other paddling equipment (kayaks) that are owned by Vero Beach Rowing.
The location is the Vero Beach Rowing compound just north of the east end of the Barber Bridge, behind the Ambulance Squad Building, in McWilliams Park and near to the public boat launches.
Be prepared to be amazed at the beauty of our lagoon and its wildlife. We look forward to seeing you at Vero Beach Rowing!
