Victoria City Rowing Club (VCRC) invites you to a weekend of racing on Elk Lake.  Duelling Over A Grand is unlike any other regatta on the West Coast: two crews race head to head for 1000 meters, with the winner advancing to the next round of racing. A double knockout format allows a crew to advance through the tournament until they lose twice and are knocked out of the tournament or progress all the way to the final. With the double knockout, tournament style format, crews have the chance to take what they learned in one race and apply it to the next one.   The exciting sudden death final has the crew who lost only once (and progressed to the final through the “second chance tree”) racing the crew who won all its races (and progressed to the final through the “undefeated tree”).

You may notice that there are many events that can be registered in. This is done to allow you to enter whichever category you want and then the LOC will look at final entry numbers and merge events where neccessary in order to create the best racing opportunities for participants. 

If there is an event that you would like to race but isn't listed, please contact the LOC and we will see what we can do. 

New for this year is the Invitational Open 8+ races. See the regatta package for more details.
