2019 Learn to Row *updated

Interested in learning to row?  We’d love to have you join us in 2019!

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.

Rowing is a great outdoor workout with fantastic scenery!  But there is also the opportunity for all ages to compete. We will host the Red Island Regatta at Brudenell, P.E.I. on Saturday August 24, 2019.

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 $130
