L2 Training Sessions *new this year
All L2s are invited to take part in a safety refresher and an introduction to our new Skills and Drills package.

New this year – Competitive/Advanced Fitness
Under the guidance of a former high performance rower and coach, we will be offering a program for those 16 to 100 years old, male and female, who are interested in taking their fitness abilities to the next level. This will be of interest to those of a moderate to advanced fitness level with an interest in cross-training and mixing up their fitness routine. No previous rowing experience required – only a desire for a hard-core full-body workout in the early mornings and/or evenings on beautiful Charlottetown harbour.
Rowing is a sport where you can go from novice to competitive in a matter of months so opportunities to compete – from the Red Island Regatta in Brudenell (August) to the World Coastal Rowing Championships in British Columbia (October) are available to those who like a goal for their workouts and to combine travel with fitness.
Workout times/days will be determined by the training group and boat availability.
Learn to Row 2018
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.
To get your name on the list for 2018, email rowingpei@gmail.com.

Cost of Learn to Row is $130
 Other membership categories and fees are available here
The first dry land sessions for the Learn to Row will be either:

Saturday June 9th 12:30-4:30 p.m. or Saturday June 16th 12:30-4:30 p.m.

We will add more Learn to Row sessions through the summer and into the fall as numbers warrant.

You will select one of these group sessions.  Then you will individually book two open water rows.

For new members, Learn to Row 2018 includes:

-membership with Rowing Canada Aviron
-a short “intro row” and two full open water rows with qualified LTR coaches– the option to convert to a full membership at the end of LTR training

*you must be 16 or over to participate in the Learn to Row program because of safety regulations

Exciting news from Rowing the World!

Join us in 2018 to row Canada’s prettiest little province, Prince Edward Island.

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.
