How many of us have wondered what it must be like to glide effortlessly along the Schuylkill River in a rowing shell? Join MALT on Boat House Row (home of numerous world and Olympic champions) to learn how to row, or advance your skills. These courses will provide one of the best vantage points in the city to watch seasons change in Philadelphia. Open to adults 18 and up, with varying levels of rowing experience, learn the fundamentals of proper sculling technique, safety and boat handling skills.
