Visitors can receive an introduction to rowing June 3 when the Newport Rowing Club will open its doors for National Learn to Row Day.

The club’s boathouse, 301 Harvey Drive, Newport, will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with coaches and athletes on-site to give visitors an introduction to rowing.

Visitors will be able to try out the club’s rowing machines before heading out onto the Christina River for on-the-water instruction.

National Learn to Row Day is an annual program sponsored by USRowing, the nonprofit membership organization recognized by the U.S. Olympic Committee as the national governing body for the sport of rowing in the U.S.
