I am currently rowing crew for my second year. My team and I practice on the Christina River in Delaware every day except for Monday and Sunday. The reason I got into rowing was because my sister had participated in it for one year; I found the sport very interesting and decided to try it. Crew is a very vigorous sport that requires a positive attitude and tough work ethic. We compete in Regattas: races which are usually every other Sunday for my team. Regattas are somewhat stressful yet also very fun, just like any other game or meet for other sports.
I enjoy rowing because it is not as common as sports like soccer or lacrosse; it is a great and unique experience. I would highly recommend joining this sport if you are interested in trying new things.
