We'll head out in our stable rowing boats that are ideal for learning the sport of Crew Rowing (we'll be rowing in Quads which have four rowers and 1 coxswain who helps to steer the boat). We'll travel along the beautiful Ottawa River past our historical boathouse, Capital landmarks and forested shoreline.
