Our Story 

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.

Why Row?

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.

Thanks!
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 rowingpei@gmail.com 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.

Our 2015 Learn to Row was our largest group yet.  We also had the biggest number of conversions – rowers who graduated from LTR and joined us for the rest of the season.IMG_0520learn to row monday

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!

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.
