Discovery Day Regatta

Each year, the Royal St. John’s Regatta Committee kicks off the rowing season with the first on-pond event of the year. Happening on Saturday, June 24 (weather permitting) the Discovery Day races will give rowers the first taste of competition on Quidi Vidi Lake in a fun, informal way.

The call for races will happen at 6:00 a.m., this is when the decision is made on if the event is going ahead. There are several factors which determine this decision, most importantly, the weather. Follow along for current weather conditions, using our weather station! Shortly after 6:00 a.m., the decision will be announced on our website and social media.

Please ensure your team has arrived and ready to row 30 minutes prior to scheduled time.
