"Learn to Row Day” a success at Mother’s Beach.

It was a time of fun and learning during RowLA’s "Learn to Row Day” at Mother’s Beach.

The event yesterday attracted nearly 50 people, including Olympic bronze medalist Anita DeFrantz who was on hand to teach rowing techniques.

“It was a fantastic success with lots of new rowers learning from experienced rowers,” said organizer Liz Greenberger. “Having Anita DeFrantz, Olympic medalist and International Olympic Committee member, there was a very special experience for all participating.”

All ages were in attendance. RowLA regularly works with girls from schools, including Westchester High School, teaching them rowing as well as offering academic tutoring.
