May/June RCA Newsletter Article

the May/June issue of the RCA newsletter featured an article on Rowing PEI’s use of the Rec Fleet. See below:

 

RCA’s Rec Fleet Program

Announced in April: Fort Langley RC, Saskatchewan Rowing Association (2014),  Hatchets Training Centre, ON, and Nova Scotia Rowing Association (Bridgetown Rowing Club) are recipients of RCA’s Recreational Centre Equipment program.

Last year, participation in the program allowed Rowing PEI to establish a club (show here). Three years ago, there was no infrastructure on PEI for the sport of rowing. These boats have allowed the club to grow from two to 45. “There is nothing like an open water row in the recreational quad and get greeted by a seal who follows you on your morning row,” said Stephen Murray of Rowing PEI.
