NORWICH- As an introduction to the 2013 rowing season, the Chelsea Boat Club and the Norwich Recreation Department will host an Open House at the Recreation Department Office on 75 Mohegan Road at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 23. Some of the boats will be on display and CBC members will be available to answer questions. The club is interested in attracting both experienced rowers and those interested in learning to row. The Chelsea Boat Club will commence its sixth consecutive year of operation at The Marina at American Wharf in downtown Norwich during the week of April 8. The spring season (April-May) will be limited to experienced adult rowers and NFA crews. The club is actively recruiting experienced rowers and coxswains during this period, especially those interested in coaching. Interested parties should call Pat Fuery at 860-887-6758 for information. During its summer program, which will begin June 3, the CBC will focus on recruiting adult rowers. Instruction will take place twice weekly during scheduled adult evening rows. Rowers have access to eight world class Vespoli four-oared racing shells, three recreational single sculls and a recreational double scull. Experienced and qualified novice adult rowers are encouraged to organize their own crews which they are free to row at any time on their own schedule. Please contact the Recreation Department at 860-823-3791 if there are any questions.
