my first time to scull | this morning at vero beach florida

until i was comfortable that i wouldn’t tip over, i found myself doing just arms & body … then added quarter or half slide / because i tended to lose control of my oars when i did full strokes – had difficulty getting them out of the water \ most of the time, my problem was starboard / not surprising since i exclusively row port  \ i was also fully aware that i was making short strokes which i eventually corrected as the week progressed
