FISA World Rowing Masters Regatta

  • Hosted By: St. Catharines World Rowing

The Royal Canadian Henley Course has hosted a number of rowing events over the years; a brief overview of these events is listed below.

The Royal Canadian Henley Regatta began in 1880 as the championship for the newly formed Canadian Amateur Rowing Association. The Royal Canadian Henley Regatta was hosted in many different locations until Port Dalhousie, Martindale Pond specifically, became its permanent home in 1903. The 'Henley', as it is commonly known, is hosted annually the first week of August.

The Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association (CSSRA) also holds its annual regatta at the Royal Canadian Henley Course each year. This event is open to any collegiate, high school or secondary school in the world as long as all participants are enrolled in school for the term and are under the age of 19. The Annual CSSRA regatta is held the first weekend of June each year.

The Royal Canadian Henley Course also hosted the 1999 World Rowing Championships and the 1970 World Rowing Championships.
