Three members of MBRC raced in Vancouver, Washington this past weekend. Judy Baker, Ruth Rutledge and Ric Tull tested themselves against other Masters rowers from the Pacific Northwest. Judy returned home with two gold medals and Ruth with one. Ric had an excellent final in his single, missing the medals by one spot.
Congratulations on a successful weekend!
Congratulations to our Jr. B Women’s quad for winning a gold medal at the Brentwood Regatta. Also job well done to the Jr B Novice Women who also won their heat in the 4X+ and came 4th in the final. Coach, Cheryl Thibodeau,is pretty proud of all of her rowers!
Our spring Learn to Row for adults is now full. We are taking a wait list for those who are interested and have not yet signed up.
All Masters fees are $675 per year. This allows a Master to row 3x per week. Rowing sessions for Masters are provided Mon – Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings.
We are currently in a state of flux regarding coaching: we currently have a coach (Richard Young) on Monday and Wednesday evenings and will have a Masters Learn to row Coach on the Monday and Thursday for LTR. Starting in May we will have Lindsay Wise on Tuesdays and Sundays as well.
Maple Bay Rowing Club is offering 4 sessions of learn-to-row for 13 – 18 year olds. Registration is open on the Rowing Canada membership site.
Make this summer the one that you learn to row!
Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers and courageous athletes who made this year’s regatta a huge success. Results are posted on the Regatta tab. We tested a new course set up for the BC Games this year and, by all accounts, it’s a keeper.
We look forward to hosting the BC Games in July and welcoming you back to our regatta next April.
Clubs wanting to race at the annual Maple Bay Regatta can visit Regatta Central to enter competitors. We apologize for the late availability and encourage you to visit the site now to enter. Regatta time is just over a week away!
