Today was supposed to be my first lesson on the water rowing in a boat with two oars. I grew up rowing with one oar, which is called sweep. But two oars is called skulling. Well, they are very different because in racing shells (boats), when you only have one oar, you are in the boat with other people and you have to stabilize together. When it is just you, the boat moves more and it is more unstable. Plus, learning to move the oar (feathering and so forth) with both hands instead of one is different too.
Anyways, today I was supposed to have my first lesson. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and it wasn't safe to go out. Therefore, I ended up just learning about the boat house and asking some other technical questions that I will mention in my podcast later this month. I will keep you posted, but here is my rowing update.
Here is a blog/vlog documenting my journey from thought to execution. Current plan: 2021 - hike to Everest base camp. 2022 - row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
