What You'll Get
The song "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" ends with the phrase “life is but a dream,” which is far less metaphysically unnerving than the original words, “life is but a fish's dream.” Distract yourself from the implications with today's Groupon to Winnipeg Rowing Club. Choose between the following options:
• For $99, you get an eight-session adult Learn-to-Row program (a $200 value).
• For $125, you get a two-week, eight-session youth summer camp (a $250 value).
The championship-garnering instructors at Winnipeg Rowing Club acquaint students young and old with the strokes necessary to propel a rowboat through even the most turgid water. Over the course of the eight-session Learn-to-Row program, adults spend three weeks gleaning basic rowing techniques and safety essentials and learning how to distract a shark by using only a laser pointer. Sapling students having just finished grades six through eight can enroll in the two-week youth summer camp, which packs its eight intense seven-hour days with paddle-centric games and challenges that emphasize safety, method, and a few nonrowing athletic pursuits.
With a 10:1 student-to-staff ratio for kids and a maximum of 16 water jockeys in each adult class, Winnipeg Rowing Club personalizes its instruction and fosters a genteel camaraderie rarely found outside London's most hoity-toity fight clubs. The club furnishes participants with all boating gear but suggests bringing along water and lunch, wearing snug clothing, and trimming nails to avoid scratches and confusion with crustacean species.
