The regatta is a go. The medals are ready, the food caterer is ready for the post regatta social, and Georgian Bay Rowing Cub is eager to show what they can do. There are less entries than we hoped for but we will move any entries that are the only entry into another event and expand the age categories to accomodate the change. We will be checking that there is enough time for the athlete if they are in multiple events. We are excited to see rowing grow in the near north and make this regatta an annual event.


The Near North Classic is a new Masters Regatta to be held on Little Lake in Midland Ontario with the Georgian Bay Rowing Club. This is the second race in the Trillim Masters Series following the Tony Biernacki Sr. Memorial Regatta. The formats will be the same and will be a great preperation for the Ontario Masters Championships.

It will be held on Sunday July 6th and include a fixed start on a 6 lane rowing course. It will be a wet launch from a beautiful snady beach in Little Lake Park. there is ample room for parking and enjoying a day in the park.
