New program alert! Brackley Bay Summer 2023

Revisit Rowing at Brackley Bay

Hello Rowing Enthusiasts! 

My name is Christine Blanchard.  I am the Brackley Bay Flatwater Rowing Program coordinator for 2023.  Yes, that’s right…Brackley Bay, just off Shaw’s hotel.  It is a beautiful place to row!  Quiet! No motor boats! Dunes in the background! Generally flat water conditions.  Easy entry into the water…we have a new dock as of 2022!  

If you have experience in flatwater boats, all you need to do is register with RowingPEI.  Our experienced flatwater times are Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 4:30-6:30 pm.  And, if needed,  Saturday from 8-10 am. Come join us!  Space is limited with 6 seats remaining so please register early.  It is first come, first serve!

If you are new to flatwater rowing, we have a three session workshop delivered by our experienced and highly certified rowing coach: Chantelle Hanley.  Chantelle Hanley Linkedin  These sessions will help you get acquainted with the flatwater experience, plus  I have provided practice times dedicated to just new to flatwater rowing (Wednesday and Friday 6:30-8:00 pm)

I rowed for 6 weeks at UNB in 1992 and returned to rowing a couple of years ago.  During my two years of rowing at Brackley, I have embraced the challenge of flatwater rowing, became physically stronger, and had a lot of fun with the small group of dedicated adult rowers. I sincerely hope you consider revisiting our rowing crew!

If you have any questions, please reach out to me personally: 902 940 4418 or

See you at Brackley!
