Free Spirits

The club started in 2006 when some disgruntled rowers left another on-line group because it had too many rules. The group decided to contact people on the Concept 2 rankings to see if they would be interested in taking part in a few challenges. The emails flying around soon got out of hand and in late 2006 the Free Spirits forum began. We celebrate our birthday each year on 16th May. Please visit: https://www.freespiritsrowing.com
