The Nelson Rowing Club is proud to host the 2019 Nelson Sprints Regatta on Saturday, August 10, in beautiful Lakeside Park, Nelson, BC.

The Nelson Sprints Regatta is open to rowers of all ages and experience. Races will include 500m sprints for novice crews in both junior and masters 1X's and 2X's. All other races will be 1000m. Boat types include 1X, 2X and 4X. A minimum of three entries is required to make an event. The emphasis at the Nelson Sprints is on fun and friendly competition. 

The regatta entry fee is $60. This fee includes entry in multiple races (including RCA and Row BC seat fees) and a post-race BBQ and Awards ceremony. A local school for Registered Massage Therapists will be set up on site to offer free massages to all participants. Individual registration of each athlete must be made via Regatta Central. The site will give registrants the option to pay online, however, we would prefer to collect payments by cheque or cash to the Nelson Rowing Club.

The Nelson Rowing Club requests that each coach/organizer submit a list of rowers and entries (including first and last names and ages) to the Regatta Chair at [email protected] by July 31. One payment per club is appreciated. 

Attendance of extra guests at the BBQ and Awards ceremony will be welcomed at $10/person. Advance notice is required to accommodate extra guests at the BBQ.
