Save the Date – Near North Masters Regatta, June 28 2015
After great success in the regatta’s first year, the Near North Masters Regatta will be held on June 28, 2015. The regatta was held last year in an effort to increase the number of opportunities for Masters to race. Hosted by the Georgian Bay Rowing Club in Midland, Ontario, the regatta’s picturesque setting compliments the local region’s relaxing atmosphere and amazing hospitality.
Peter Somerwil, who led the charge to develop the event last year and remains involved with the regatta, explained that the draw of the regatta is its great venue in Midland, which is a great community for rowing. He further emphasized that it is wonderful to see rowing and racing opportunities expand North.
Last year, the Near North Masters Regatta hosted 9 clubs with 45 boat entries. This year, the regatta consists of races for singles, doubles, fours, quads, and eights and will be held on June 28. Registration deadline is June 22, 2015 and for more information please go to Regatta Central.
