Tim takes to the paddle board like a fish to water, and doesn’t fall in

Row, row, row a boat

Concord Crew wants to make a rower out of you – so sign up today

Are you in high school or middle school? Do you enjoy spending time on the water in a long, skinny boat with others? And finally, can you use both arms in a rhythmic pattern to row that boat? If you answered yes to one or all three of the above questions then the people at Concord Crew would like to meet you. That’s because the group of rowing enthusiasts is gearing up for its fall…
