RCA National Rowing Championship Regatta

  • Hosted By: Rowing Canada Aviron, Maple Bay Rowing Club
  • Sanctioned by RCA and Rowing BC (2022)


On behalf of Rowing Canada Aviron & Maple Bay Rowing Club (joint hosts of the event) and the whole the Organizing Committee, welcome to the 2022 Rowing Canada Aviron, National Rowing Championships.

It is with great pleasure we welcome athletes, coaches and rowing friends to Quamichan Lake, the new home of the RCA National Team at Duncan Community Lodge, Duncan B.C.

Whilst this venue has been used many times in the past, this regatta will be the first BIG regatta staged at the venue. We are planning many exciting innovations and upgrades that we are sure will provide our rowing community with an engaging experience and some fond memories of this most beautiful venue - in the heart of the Cowichan Valley.

Have a great regatta - and I hope to meet you all throughout the regatta!

Susan Macdonald, Chair of the Organizing Committee
