Crews may register by sending an e-mail to [email protected] Please note your crew's name and the contact information for the team leader (person responsible for team coordination and bookings). Sign-in information for the online booking system will be e-mailed to the team leader once your registration fee is paid. ONLY one person should do the bookings. ONLY one person can do bookings for your crew, and the online system will be monitored to ensure this rule is upheld.


The cost of the 2018 Winter/Spring Training Program is $50 per month (per crew), plus HST.


You can pay your fee via EMT to [email protected] or at The Royal St. John's Regatta Committee General Manager's office on the second floor of the Boathouse during the following times:

  • Thursday, January 4 (12:00 - 4:00)

Again, space is limited, so please register soon.


Once again this year The Royal St. John's Regatta will be partnering with Rowing Newfoundland and the Canada Games rowing crews to cover the overall cost of the program. As a result, each organization will receive fifty (50) per cent of the available time in the erg room. Both organizations will swap the early and late bookings every two weeks to ensure fairness to both groups
