Rowing in BC has long led Canada in terms of diversity and inclusion.

  • Born in Alert Bay, BC, 1956 Olympic silver medallist Carl Ogawa was the first Asian-Canadian Olympian/Olympic medallist.
  • From the Vancouver Rowing Club’s launch of the first Canadian women’s rowing program in 1971 and the launch of the UBC’s women’s program in 1976, and with ground-breaking BC athletes like Tricia Smith followed by Silken Laumann, Marnie McBean and Kathleen Heddle along with coaches like Al Morrow, Rowing BC has been a key player in balancing the boat for women’s participation in sport. According to Rowing Canada, “Starting in 1977, Canadian women’s crews initiated a series of medal wins unparalleled in the western world.”
  • Vancouver Rowing Club programs introduced Deaf Sport athletes to learn-to-row programs in 1979.
  • As of 2018, Para rowing is included in all regattas held in BC.

We are confident there is a safe and welcoming place in rowing just for you too!
