The Rowing PEI board is excited to announce that we are moving ahead with our 2020 on the water season.
We have prepared a Return to Rowing protocol following guidelines from the Chief Public Health Office and Rowing Canada, and the documents have been submitted to Sport PEI.
To sign up for rows: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a044caeaf2ba20-recreational1
To begin, we can only use singles and doubles as singles because of physical distancing rules.
That means our Learn to Row program is on hold, for now. We are looking at a creative way to do Learn to Row – from a distance – but we need the water to warm up.
We hope our Learn to Row prospects will be patient. We will be in touch soon.
If you are a returning rower and interested in rowing in June, you will need to attend one of our MANDATORY training sessions on Zoom. Please send us an email if you still need to do the safety training: firstname.lastname@example.org
An individual membership for 2020 is $350. We would appreciate if you can pay by eTransfer to this email address. If you prefer to pay by cheque or cash, please send us an email to make arrangements. You will also need to register online through the Rowing Canada Web Registration System.
FYI – you will need to wear a mask on the dock. So if you don’t have one, this would be a good time to pick one up! *actually the latest best advice is to have two masks – one for going out, the other for coming back in*
We are still looking for safety boat drivers and other volunteers for this season. Please contact one of our board members (Sparrow/Brian/Nancy/Alex/
Daphe/Jamie/Alan) if you are interested in getting more involved in the club.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Your Rowing PEI board – Sparrow, Brian, Nancy, Daphne, Alex, Jamie and Alan
A big thank you to everyone who helped us get the boats and other equipment safely to the dock!
