    Bowen crew: Leslie, Kevin, Peter, Michael, Annette, Fabio, Jenn, Angie


    "How do coastal rowers think?" you may wonder. Well, it goes a little like this;

    Crew1 "Hey, does anyone wanna go to Bowen, I heard there’s a race that will accept rowers?"

    Crew2 "Sure, let’s do it. How far is it?"

    Crew1 "Well it can’t be that far, it’s only a little island after all."

    Crew2,3,4 "I’m in, me too, me three."

    Crew1 "Who will cox?"

    Crew 2,3,4 "Angie will. Just don’t tell her it’s for a race."

    Angie "Hi guys what are you all talking about?"

    Crew all "Hi Angie, wanna go to Bowen for a beer?"

    Thats how it all starts, a group of people who say yes, and then figure out the details. The Salish Sea launched a coxed quad and a men’s double into the Race Around Bowen - a 32 km race featuring surf ski, kayak, sup and 2 rowing boats. The weather was perfect, the water ranged from 4 ft ferry wake, to 3 ft chop, back eddies and even some dead flat zones. The fine folk of Bowen welcomed us at the finish with a salmon BBQ, prizes and the coldest, bestest beer in the world! We will be back next year. Just don’t tell Angie.

    JSCA WaveChaser Paddle Series got off to a lightning start last Thursday – literally! 

    Our own Michael Stephen was mid race when….

    ‘I was 4th, and nearly around the 5 km marker (1/2 way) when they cancelled the race due to lightning.  It sure would be fun to have other rowing shells on the water next time–the whole Salish fleet would be awesome.’

    Register on our events page for the next WaveChaser Event on June 9th!



    This Photo was taken in 2014 but last week Michael was lonely as the only rower in the JSCA WaveChaser Paddle Event past week! Join him at the next WaveChaser event!

    We had a blast rowing to False Creek and showing off the Bella Bella quad to our fellow rowers at the Head of the Creek regatta. The coastal quad is a bigger boat than the racing shells at the regatta, but can easily handle the big winds and waves that kicked up that day, causing havoc for some, and fun for the our crew!





    Sometimes the water is a little deeper than you expect right Carol?



    Our big blue flag tells you that Salish Sea rowers are nearby playing with the sea.



    We wear the Salish Sea orange for pride and visibility.
