Here’s more about Rowing PEI!

Rowing is a great outdoor sport with fantastic scenery.  And it is considered one of the best workouts around!

“When we said full-body we weren’t kidding. There’s just no comparison to cardio exercise that only involves the lower body, such as biking, the elliptical machine, or running on a treadmill. This is a calorie-killing, efficient workout.”

Read more about the benefits of rowing:

If you are goal-oriented, there is also the opportunity for all ages to compete. We will have coached sessions to prepare crews for the Nova Scotia Sprints in mid-July 2021. *may be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic

We will also host the Red Island Rowgatta at Brudenell, P.E.I. on Saturday August 21 and August 22, 2021.

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.

Cost of Learn to Row is $150

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.
