Rowing School: River Freedom in Five Days

Nicole Hickok / Thursday, July 3, 2014

The sun begins its daily ritual of warming, of basking. I squint my eyes across the water watching its beams break on the river’s surface and fracture into bright and brilliant blues and greens.

Clinics taught people about unpinning boats with different rope systems, repairing your boats, and honing...
