A BEAUTIFUL SPRING FUNDRAISER:

Our Canada Games rowers are hoping you will support them through a very beautiful spring fundraiser. Just in time for Mother’s Day, we are partnering with Lilli & Maddi selling some beautiful scarves. 

See them all here. Everything in the spring catalogue is available:
https://www.lilimaddi.com/pages/spring-2017#page/8
All scarves are $20 and the team receives a share of the sales.
Our rowers will be collecting your orders between now and April 17th (Easter Monday). The scarves will be ready for Mother’s Day on May 14!
This is a simple way for you to support the team as they begin their final preparations for the Canada Summer Games in Kenora, Ontario. The team competes July 31st to August 4th, so it’s getting close. There are still many hours on the water and on the erg before then and they could use your support.
Please email peirowing2017@gmail.com with questions or to place an order. 

Learn to Row 2017
Learn to Row is your entry point to the wonderful sport of rowing! Whether you’re looking for a low impact, full body workout, a way to get out on the water, a chance to meet some great people or a combination, it all starts here.No experience with water sports is needed and it is a great substitute for exercise after being in the gym all winter.

You can row recreationally but there is also the opportunity for all ages to compete. Our coastal boats are made especially for the wind and wave conditions on the Harbour. We row out of the Charlottetown Yacht Club from May to October.

We are still fine-tuning the details for our 2017 Learn to Row but if you’re interested, don’t miss your chance for this season.

To get your name on the list for 2017, email rowingpei@gmail.com.
