About MBRC

         About   Maple Bay Rowing Club        

Mission Statement: "The Maple Bay Rowing Club,  through a community based and volunteer driven approach, inspires a love of rowing, recreational and competitive, in people of all ages through coaching and mutual support with an emphasis on safety and enjoyment in a sheltered natural setting."

Since 1975 Maple Bay Rowing Club has worked to develop the sport of rowing in Maple Bay near Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island.  Our members come from the mid Vancouver Island area to enjoy Rowing’s many health, fitness and social benefits.  Club activities and programs focus on Junior and Master Rowers.  Rowing education is a major focus of our club.  We’ve designed the program so that rowers receive individual attention to progress quickly from beginner to rowing independently on the water.

MBRC is administered by a 10 member volunteer board of directors that meets monthly.  These meetings and the recorded minutes are open to all club members.

Western Canada Summer Games 2015

Rachael & Emily

Our MBRC Junior Rowers won two gold Medals at the Western Canada Summer Games in Wood Buffalo Park, Alberta. Rachel Bond and Emily Whitaker won their spot earlier to represent BC at the Games and won gold with the BC Womens' 8+ and with the BC Womens 4-. We are so proud of these young rowers, coached by James Dunaway, who have trained hard all year.
