National Rowing Championships / Canada Cup Regatta
The National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup Regatta are two of the biggest events on Row Ontario’s High Performance calendar each year.
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 format. The racing format is time trials to seeded quarter/semi-finals to 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.
Canada Cup Regatta
The Canada Cup Regatta (CCR) is currently contested the day after the NRC’s and is raced in 4X’s and 8’s over a distance of 500m. Ontario’s 4x’s are boated by the respective U17 and U19 athletes. Ontario’s 8+ are open to participation with seats being offered to the fastest athletes in the NRC portion of the weekend.
