When: Sat., Aug. 29, 9-11 a.m. 2009
Opening day is coming up for Oakland rowers. The JackLondonAquaticCenter (Estuary Park 115 Embarcadero East, Oakland) is the home of the Oakland Strokes, who welcome novices to their open house Saturday August 29. The boat house will also host its annual oar sale, for those wanting to break in a new set of sculls for the 2009-2010 season. Later that day, the Varsity rowers will take to the water and shake off some of the summer rust, and get limbered up for a busy fall. Oaklandstrokes.org, Open House 9:30-11:00 a.m.
