2019 Red Island Regatta: Sprints and Coastal Racing

 

Welcome to the Red Island Regatta hosted by Rowing PEI. This unique regatta is a hybrid format that offers sprint racing in the morning and a coastal rowing competition in the afternoon. Rowers will compete on two courses located on the Brudenell River. Located next to four-star facilities at the Rodd Brudenell Resort, the Brudenell and Dundarave golf courses and the Brudenell River Campground, the event will be supervised by local volunteers and support staff from East Coast Docks, with First Aid provided by the PEI GSAR (Ground Search and Rescue). 

 

 

The 1,000 metre sprint course will travel behind the resort, with a clear view of the finish line. The coastal competition will be a head race, launching from a sand spit, rowing a buoyed course that will be visible to spectators on the shore. For the first time, we will also feature a beach sprint – adding even more excitement to the mix.

 

This hybrid regatta will provide opportunities for rowers to experience three different types of racing, all on the same day!

 

Awards will be given out at the end of the day. There will also be multiple social events, highlighting traditional Island hospitality, including a post-regatta barbeque at the multi-purpose centre.

The non-master races are listed as championship so that rowers can race all together. Awards will be presented for the different categories of Senior, Junior, lightweight as well as the fastest person in the race. We will be asking coaches to let us know which rowers are in each category.

 

Masters may compete in the OMix 8+ as Senior.
