About The Rondout Rower

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, a Pisces, Nelsie Aybar-Grau not only enjoyed swimming in the Caribbean Sea but she has enjoyed travels that have brought her in close contact to the waters of the Thames, the Seine, the Yangtse, the Amazon, the Mississippi, the Hudson and the Harlem Rivers. Although she enjoyed swimming she had never pursued athletics in any serious way. After a career in computer programming for Wall Street area financial institutions she moved into the Hudson Valley upstate New York area. Then at 60 years of age as a favor to a friend she started photographing the Rondout Creek and the rowers in the Rondout Rowing Club. After four years of rowing both on land and water she became president of the rowing club from 2014 to 2017. Rowing has changed her life. Living steps away from the Rondout Creek has brought her closer to nature and the meditative rejuvenation that it provides.

Magazine articles on rowing multiply

Although this article was written on March 3rd, 2016 AT 3:00 PM EST, it was shared on my timeline by another rowing blog TODAY!  This article is in a magazine called Style Caster (one of those very annoying glam magazines that have so many pop-up ads that you can’t even read the article).   The article is written by Jasmine Garnsworthy ( an editor at StyleCaster, covering everything from health and fitness to celebrity news, street style, and pop culture. She swears coconut oil can fix anything, obsessively face-mists through all stressful situations, and will try any wellness trend at least once. Past jobs include editor gigs at POPSUGAR Australia and Australian women’s site Mamamia.)

All the points are valid today as much as in 2016.  But the revolution (my characterization) in rowing popularity is only just beginning, really:
