Team Nova Scotia Announced for National Rowing Championships

October 12, 2017

Sport Nova Scotia - The National Rowing Championships are open to competitors from all over Canada as representatives of their home province. The small boat racing (singles and pairs) provides the ideal measure to assess the fastest rowers in the country, resulting in the naming of national champions. The Canada Cup portion that follows provides the opportunity for Canada’s developing rowers to compete against other provinces within larger crews that include National Team Athletes who are from their home province.

Row Nova Scotia is pleased to announce the six rowers who have been selected to represent Nova Scotia at the 2017 National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup (NRC-CC) Regatta taking place November 09-12 in Burnaby, BC.
