World Rowing Coastal Championships Newsletter
The World Rowing Federation (FISA) has awarded the 2018 World Rowing Coastal Championships to Sidney, BC. The regatta will take place October 11-13, 2018. This is the first time the World Rowing Coastal Championships has ever been hosted in North America! Read through the World Rowing Coastal Championship’s first newsletter to see how you can get involved in the event as a rower or as a volunteer.
All BC rowers are encouraged to consider racing at the World Rowing Coastal Championships. As the Host Nation, Canada does not have a restriction on the number of entries we can put in. Boats will be made available by Euro Diffusion for all athletes racing. There is no entry fee to race, but boat rental fees will apply.

In the lead up to the 2018 World Rowing Coastal Championships, a variety of opportunities will be available to try coastal rowing for the first time, or fit in some training in the coastal shells before signing up to race. Rowing BC is very excited to be hosting Come-and-Try coastal sessions around BC this summer in which participants will be able to try out the coastal equipment.
