2017 RCA National Rowing Championships – Canada Cup
November 9, 2017 - November 12, 2017
The 2017 RCA National Rowing Championships-Canada Cup will take place on Thursday, November 9th to Sunday, November 12th, 2017, at Burnaby Lake, Burnaby, BC.
Rowing BC has the honour of hosting the Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup (NRC-CC) Regattas from 2016-2019. These regattas will be held consecutively at Burnaby Lake and will attract the finest rowers from across the country.
The National Rowing Championships are open to competitors from all over Canada as representatives of their home province. The small boat racing (singles and pairs) provides the ideal measure to assess the fastest rowers in the country, resulting in the naming of national champions. The Canada Cup portion that follows provides the opportunity for Canada’s developing rowers to compete against other provinces within larger crews that include National Team Athletes who originated from their home province.
The Athlete Awards Banquet provides the opportunity for our athletes to celebrate their hard work and success over the past days of racing. For some athletes, their performance at the NRC will be the pinnacle of their rowing career. For others, it is a development opportunity on their path to eventually representing Canada on the world stage.
