    Salish Sea will partner with Rowing BC to host a Masters Camp for Coastal Rowing. This is the very first coastal rowing camp ever to be held in Vancouver and we are excited to show off our beautiful waters!

    All of the Salish Sea fleet will be used for this camp, so our regular Saturday night training is cancelled for this weekend. 

    You must register to participate in the camp. Register here Coastal Rowing Camp http://rowingbc.ca/event/masters-camp-vancouver

    Lets all enjoy the fireworks on shore with dryland pals during the Celebration of Light Fireworks Festival evenings. No boats out on the water after 5pm please, as the waters around English Bay, Jericho and False Creek will be choked with power boats, seadoos, and all manner of questionable watercraft.

    World Rowing Coastal Championships are not like any other Championship, or like any other regatta for that matter. The mid-length races are tough to pace and the turns can murder your lead. 


    The no-lanes format means no-holds-barred racing, churning up the water and bashing your way through the other boats to earn your place in the race. The boats are heavy and the water can be unpredictable, especially in October in Victoria.  To help you prepare for the first ever World Championships in North America, we thought that you might enjoy some insight from someone who has been there, and survived! Our appreciation to rower Ben Booth from Rebel Rower.

    Salish Sea Coastal Rowing Club is pleased to announce a new program for members this summer. For those members who want to train up for the World Rowing Coastal Championship (Oct 11-14, 2018), we are getting busy. 

    Beginning in late May/early June, we will have sunset training sessions on Saturdays, targeting a 5pm start (this may change depending upon what our members determine). We will crew up beforehand, launch and do pre-set training pieces and practices. If warranted, we will also put together dry-land training classes. 

    The sessions are available at no extra cost to members but...(there's always a "but");

    • sessions available to members only. No guest rows during this time slot
    • all of our boats are dedicated to this time slot, and may not be taken by non-racing members. 
    • all practice sessions will require members to pre-sign up, so that we can set crews and equipment. 
    • if warranted, additional time slots can be added, based on member needs.
    • a sign-up schedule will be circulated to all members later this month.

    We are so excited we can hardly keep our oars straight!

    Rowing Canada Aviron and  World Rowing announced today that Canada has won the bid to host the World Rowing Coastal Championships in Sidney B.C. in October 2018. 

    This will be the first time that the World Championships in coastal rowing has ever been held in North America, and is a huge boost for coastal rowing in Canada. "We are so excited to be hosting the Championships here in beautiful British Columbia" says Annette O'Shea, President of the Salish Sea Coastal Rowing Club, located in Vancouver B.C. "This is an opportunity for Canadian rowers to take on the world and compete in the most beautiful coastline anywhere. We are going to field some very strong crews and make Canada proud".  

    Our hats go off to a small group of dedicated volunteers (see our previous blog post on this crew of pirates) who formed the Bid Committee and never doubted that their efforts to bring the Championships to Canada would be so successful. They are truly the winning crew already. 

    As the first FISA recognized coastal rowing club in B.C., Salish Sea Coastal Rowing Club is well positioned to work with Vancouver rowers to form crews and train for the competition. We will be announcing new, specialized crew development programs in the coming weeks, for a select number of athletes. Watch here and our Salish Sea Facebook page for more announcements. 

    Go Canada Go!!!!!

    Salish Sea Coastal Rowing is set to be pretty active on the racing circuit this year.  A few of our members are registered and ready to race a number of races in the Pacific Northwest over the course of the year... and oh... did you know that the World Championships are coming to Victoria? Watch for some Salish Sea representation there!

    But this post is about La Conner! One of the many very well organized races put on by our friends down in Washington State.  Maybe you've heard of them? Sound Rowers?  

    These guys put on a whole slew of races each year complete with awards and soup... all for $20!! Races are open to any type of craft that is powered by humans (Paddle, Oar, Peddle... hands...)  Check out their race schedule page here

    Annette and Rebecca decided it was high time they did a race together and packed up the LiteBoat 2x and made the short trek down to La Conner in the torrential rain... 

    The rain managed to stop for the race.  Annette and Rebecca cruised the 11k course in just over an hour and managed to snag a blue ribbon for their efforts!


    Rebecca & Annette are appreciating the break in the rain...



    You gotta love the orange... 



    mmhmmm!



    Makes us easy to spot in a crowd.... still not raining!



    After race soup and ribbons! 


    Curious about the other races our members are signed up for? Stay tuned for more!!
