Rowing PEI Blue Sky Session – Saturday November 25, 2017

You are invited to join the Rowing PEI community in a ‘blue sky’ session to help determine the future of competitive rowing on PEI

Saturday November 25, 2017, 10am to 4pm

Sport PEI, Enman Crescent, Charlottetown

To do that, an experienced and independent facilitator will host a workshop where we will discuss questions such as:

  • Is there a desire to grow the flat water competitive rowing program on PEI?  A high performance program?

  • Is it feasible to have a vibrant flat water competitive rowing program on PEI?

  • Is there a desire to have a competitive coastal rowing program on PEI?

  • If yes, what will it take to get there? What are our assets?  What are our gaps?

Information from the workshop will inform a report and recommendations to the Board of Directors of Rowing PEI.

Who should attend?

  • Rowing PEI members with an interest in competitive rowing

  • Individuals with a background in competitive rowing – as an athlete, coach and/or volunteer

  • Individuals with a background in competitive sport planning, program delivery and/or governance

  • An open mind and a desire to contribute to sport are the most important criteria.

Participation by Skype and/or teleconference can be arranged.

To RSVP and for more information, please contact Lea Bryden at leabrydenleadership@gmail.com.

To ensure we have enough food and space, please let us know by November 20th if

Come and Try Rowing – Saturday August 19th, 9 until noon!

You are invited to come to the Charlottetown Yacht Club on Saturday August 19th, between 9 and noon, to learn more about the sport of rowing and even give it a try! We will have indoor rowing machines (ergs) and a stroke kit available to learn how to row. Then participants can hop in one of our coastal double shells and try a few strokes out on the Charlottetown Harbour. (as time and conditions permit) Rowing PEI members will be on hand to answer questions. We will have healthy snacks and some ParticipAction prizes.

For more information, contact rowingpei@gmail.com

Rowing PEI registration this Saturday

If you are interested in trying the sport of rowing, Rowing P.E.I. is holding registration for the 2017 season this Saturday.

“Learn to Row is your entry point to rowing,” said Rowing P.E.I. president Daphne Dumont.

“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 with Learn to Row.”

Dumont added there is no experience with water sports needed and rowing is a great substitute for exercise after being in the gym all winter.

“Our coastal boats are made especially for the wind and wave conditions on the Charlottetown Harbour,” said Dumont.

The club rows out of the Charlottetown Yacht Club from May to October. There are also plans to set up “try rowing” events in other Island communities this season, with support from Rowing Canada Aviron.

Rowing P.E.I. will also be sending a team of rowers to the Canada Summer Games in Kenora, Ontario in late July.

The Rowing P.E.I. registration takes place this Saturday, May 6th, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the House of Sport-Royalty Centre, 40 Enman Crescent in Charlottetown.

Returning members can also register online: https://membership.rowingcanada.org/JoinProgram?id=39

Celebrating Emily Cameron!

emily boat

Thank you to everyone who was part of our celebration for Emily Cameron, the rower, and Emily Cameron – the boat!

We are so pleased to name our new racing quad in honour of Emily, with many thanks to her parents, Scott and Susan Cameron, who made a $5,000 donation towards the purchase.

We had many other generous donations at our celebration, to raise more than $4,000 on the evening.

.  emjily celebr 3 emily celebr 1 emily celebr 2 emily celebr 4 emily ch 1 emily ch 2 emily christens the boat

Watch the video here: emily champage video

And a special thank you to Andrew Jago and the team at Hudson.  A midweight quad is a very sought-after boat in Canada. Not only did they find one for us, they also sold it to us a reduced price that was within our fundraising budget.  We are proud to have this quad as part of our Rowing P.E.I. fleet.

A warm thanks to Fred Hyndman for his wonderful support. More on that to come!  Fred comes from a family steeped in P.E.I. rowing history

We also want to thank Gord Henry from Fluid – who is loaning us a heavyweight double for the next two years.  Gord was born in Summerside, P.E.I. though his family didn’t live there for long.  He is still a great supporter of Prince Edward Island and we hope he will visit us this summer.  By the way, Gord rowed for Canada at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul and made history as the only Canadian male to row in both sculling and sweep competitions.  We will have to ask him more about that when he visits!

And last, but not least, thank you to Chris Williams who is loaning us two Van Dusen singles for our training team to use. Also very generous.

As we said at the christening ceremony – it takes a village to raise a rowing club. We at Rowing P.E.I. thank you all.

Nancy Russell – on behalf of the board of Rowing P.E.I. and the Canada Games training team

Many thanks to crew at The Lost Anchor in Cavendish!

The Canada Games training team had a fantastic lobster supper fundraiser on Father’s Day, Sunday June 19th – and we have many people to thank.

Biggest thanks to Miranda Ellis and Jamie Newson (and Kaleigh Peters!) for offering to organize this fundraiser! It was a ton of work just as they were about to open for the season. We really appreciate the opportunity. And we hope that our Rowing P.E.I. members and families will drop in to The Lost Anchor this summer to show our support for their wonderful restaurant.

lob 8 lost anchor

It’s The Lost Anchor Pub & Galley, at the corner of Routes 6 and 13, called Cavendish Corner.  You turn as if you were going towards Cavendish Beach and it’s on the right, behind the Dirt Shirt store.

Other thanks:
Eric C. Robinson Inc.
Covehead Rover
MR Seafood
Cathy MacAusland

Also, many thanks to the volunteers who peeled and chopped potatoes, put together the lobster suppers and handed them out.  I don’t have pictures of everyone but here are a few.

Thanks again!
