Exciting news from Rowing the World!
Join us in 2018 to row Canada’s prettiest little province, Prince Edward Island.
In the very last days of 2017, Canada’s 150th birthday, we are waving the Maple Leaf as we announce our new rowing trip to Prince Edward Island on Canada’s east coast. Famous for lobster suppers, potato fields to the sea and Anne of Green Gables, PEI offers a concentrated dose of delightful scenery, friendly people, wonderful food and lots of ways to have fun outdoors. Now we can add rowing to the list of vacation choices. Join us for a short, sweet, summer rowing holiday.
There is still lots going on in the fall and winter 2017-2018 so we hope you will keep in touch.
Here’s what is coming up:
1. We are looking for members to join the board of Rowing PEI. We meet monthly. We try to keep the meetings as quick and lively as possible. It would be great to get some new perspectives as we plan for 2018.
We are also starting to plan for the 2018 Red Island Regatta if that is something that interests you.
2. If you are looking for a way to keep in rowing shape this winter, there are TWO rowing studios in Charlottetown to keep you busy.
Nadya at Studio Row has been offering classes in downtown Charlottetown since June and some of our members are regulars there. Mention that you are from Rowing PEI and Nadya will give you a deal to try out the water rowers.
MacQueen’s Cycling has re-branded itself as Ride and Row and has added five new Concept 2s.
To ensure we have enough food and space, please let us know by November 20th if you will be joining us on Saturday the 25th.

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 email@example.com.
