Regattas
A regatta is a day or weekend full of racing and socializing with the larger rowing community. Take the opportunity to show what you're made of as you compete with your team for personal bests and awards! Check the calendar for regattas. Spring starts with some head racing, (several km. long races), then sprints (1000 meters for masters, 2000 meters open racing). Fall ends with more head races.

Check the ROWING BC website for more details and links to regatta sites.
