2021 National Rowing Championships 
Elk Lake
Victoria, BC  
November 11-13, 2021  

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on sport, rowing and broader community life, the 2021 NRC regatta will be streamlined to minimize the financial and logistical impact upon all participants and the Organizing Committee (OC). While RCA will aim to deliver a simpler, lower impact, lower footprint event, the OC and RCA are committed to delivering a safe, fair and high quality experience for athletes and coaches. Social interactions and non-essential or high-risk situations and activities will be minimized (e.g., the NRC athlete awards dinner will not be staged) and the Canada Cup will not be run in 2021 to allow participants to minimize accommodation and transport costs. Full details of any restrictions or changes from a ‘standard’ NRC regatta will be outlined in Bulletin 2, or as required.

Everyone joining us on site at NRCs is required to be fully vaccinated. Those who are not fully vaccinated will be required to provide proof of regular Health Canada approved negative COVID tests to be completed at their own expense. More information will be included in Bulletin 2.


RCA acknowledges that our 2021 National Rowing Championships is being hosted on the traditional territories of the Lək̓wəŋən peoples known today as Songhees and Esquimalt Nations and the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples known today as W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱ (Tsawout), W̱SIḴEM (Tseycum) and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat) Nations.
