National Rowing Championships

In the Fall of each year upwards of 100 Ontario athletes compete for the province in the National Rowing Championships (NRC). The NRC regatta represents an opportunity for aspiring National Team athletes to test the waters in 1X’s and 2-‘s against the very best in the country in an inter-provincial competition. The racing format starts with time trials, then seeded quarter/semi-finals, and then onto the finals, with all athletes receiving a final finish position. The NRC results are currently used by both Rowing Canada Aviron and Row Ontario to determine a rank order of athletes for carding purposes.

Canadian University Rowing Championships

The Canadian University Rowing Championship is hosted annually in early November by one of the member institutions of the Canadian University Rowing Association. The regatta is a showcase of top Canadian University Rowing talent where many of the medalists and finalists have or will represent Canada at the international level. The first Canadian University Rowing Championship was held in 1997, and today the regatta has 20+ institutions competing.
