Postponement of Coxswains and Rowers Input Meeting:
Unfortunately, the Coxswains and Rowers Input Meeting will be postponed from Wednesday, May 22, 2013 to a later date in the Rowing Season. The RSVP numbers were less than expected so perhaps later in the season, more interest will develop.
Boathouse hours increasing:
Beginning Monday, May 20, 2013, the Royal St. John's Regatta Boathouse Hours will be 6:00am to 8:00pm Monday to Friday, with first spin at 6:00am and last spin at 8:00pm. A Learn to Row Coach will be available for most practice times. Please indicate when booking, whether it is morning, afternoon or evening, that a rowing coach will be required. Also, beginning Saturday, May 25, 2013, Saturday Boathouse Hours will be 7:30am to 12:00pm.
