The Capital Rowing Club is slated to have a free introductory rowing class on Saturday, as part of National Learn to Row Day. The session, which will happen between noon and 3 p.m., will begin at the Anacostia Community Boathouse (1900 M St. SE), rain or shine.

The class is open to people of all athletic abilities and will include instruction on rowing fundamentals and basic drills. The Capital Rowing Club will provide a “fun, safe, pressure-free environment” for novice rowers, the group said in a news release.
