Nonprofit group offers chance to sail, row in Bronx River

BRONX RIVER -

A Bronx nonprofit is offering up free rowing and sailing in the Bronx River for the rest of the summer.

“Rocking the Boat” specializes in youth development and public programs.

Every Saturday until Sept. 1, the group will give anyone the chance to set sail.

Each boat was built by kids, and most of their instructors were graduates of the on-water classroom.

The boats are designed to be untippable, giving the less experienced an extra feeling of safety when on the water.
