This year, Row Ontario is excited to extend the Masters Championships into a two-day festival, featuring opportunities for socialization, networking, and training. After racing on Saturday, there will be an opportunity for the masters community to gather at a local pub for food, drinks, and conversation. Sunday will feature on-water and dryland training and learning opportunities.

Saturday, June 15th:
RowOn Masters Championships – Details and registration available on Regatta Central.

Note: The RowOn Masters Championships was not initially configured in Regatta Central to allow composite crew entries. As has been done in previous years, composite crews will be allowed, to encourage entries and participation in all events. The regatta has now been configured to accept composite entries. Composite crews must include athletes from at least two different Clubs, each of whom meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the Regatta Package. If you wish to submit a composite entry, which was not possible prior to the standard registration deadline, please contact Kate ( to receive an exemption from the late entry fee.

Evening Social – Join us after racing! Details TBA.
