Rowing P.E.I. is excited to announce that we are planning our first ever Red Island Regatta – P.E.I. Rowing Championship for Saturday August 27, 2016. What’s even more exciting is that we are going to offer a hybrid regatta – flat water racing in the morning with a coastal competition in the afternoon.
A great month of fundraising and a celebration of Emily Cameron!
Thank you to everyone who supported our two major fundraisers for the Canada Games training team: the Father’s Day Lobster Supper and the Emily Cameron Celebration

Rowing PEI started in 2010 with the loan of several boats from Rowing Canada.
We are an energetic, social, and inclusive group, ranging in age from youth (16+) to adults. We bring to the water a broad range of fitness and skill levels.
Our coastal sculls are wider and more stable, allowing us to row in more varied conditions, including the wind and waves of the Charlottetown Harbour.
Rowers tend to be passionate about their sport. The sensation of being able to propel a boat at speed through the water under one’s own power is exhilarating.
Rowing also brings significant health benefits. It exercises all the major muscle groups through the full range of motion, involves no body contact or jarring of the joints, and improves both strength and cardiovascular performance. It attracts those looking for an enjoyable recreational activity as well as those looking for exciting competitive opportunities.
Rowing season 2016 is underway!
As always, drop us an email if you have questions or comments.
Nancy – Rowing P.E.I.
The Thanksgiving weekend marks the official end to our 2015 rowing season. It has been a great one – our best yet! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make it a success…from our Board, to all of the safeties, Learn to Row coaches, volunteers at the Row-deo and anyone who lifted a boat in or out of the water. You are all part of what keeps Rowing P.E.I. afloat and we couldn’t do it without you!
We are now creating a list for our 2016 Learn to Row. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot for the spring of 2016.
Here are some highlights from our 2015 season.
We had some spectacular sunrise and sunset rows.
We hosted our first ever Lobster Cup Row-deo. It was a lot of fun – and also gave us a taste of our potential to host a coastal regatta here on P.E.I. Click here for lots of photos!
A group of rowers from P.E.I. represented the Island at the Alma Coastal Regatta! Click here for more photos from the coastal competition.
Our new singles – and 3rd coastal double – saw lots of action on the water! We are excited to continue to expand our coastal fleet in the years ahead.

We had lots of helping hands throughout the season. Here we are unwrapping our new boats in May.
Here’s a short video or the work crew in action!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Indiegogo campaign — especially the Alberta Rowing Association who donated $1,000. The campaign raised $2,465 in just one month. Special thanks to Liza Jamani who created the campaign on Indiegogo.
