Jordan Lake Rowing Club, North Carolina's youngest rowing club, announced at their General Membership Meeting on Feb 24th that they are expanding to include adult and Masters rowing programs.
Newly appointed Board President, Dan Look, stated "JLRC is unique in that they started as a youth rowing program and are now evolving to include adults and Masters rowing. Most rowing clubs do it the other way around."
A lifelong rower and sailor Dan played a major part in the founding of Atlanta Junior Rowing Club while living in Atlanta and rowing at Atlanta Rowing Club. He joins JLRC at an exciting time in the club's history. Jim Walker, JLRC Founder and Board Past President stated "We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a rowing community on Jordan Lake that supports the development of the next generation of rowers, allowing adults to give back, while also taking part in the sport of rowing alongside these amazing youth. After retiring from international rowing in 2000 it was these kids who got me back in a boat after fifteen years. JLRC would not have been possible without our Founding Team Members and their families."
There will be an adult learn to row morning on March 17th.
