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.
Intro to Rowing 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.

Thank you to everyone who supported our 1st Annual Auction In Support of Mental Health & Wellness Programs!!

The three not-for-profit organizations, Prince Edward Island Marathon, Spinal Cord Injury-PEI, and Rowing PEI jointly raised more than $10,000 for their mental health and wellness programs.
This fundraiser would not have been possible without the support of our many donors for providing our awesome auction prizes.

 

 

 

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

Read more about the benefits of rowing: 
“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.”

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 July and the Atlantics in October.
There is also a regatta here on P.E.I. in August every year, on the Brudenell River!
