Guelph Rowing Club

Due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus and following the guidance of Row Ontario and Rowing Canada, as well as our public health agencies we are postponing the start of rowing programs.

You are however, able to access the registration program to pay for boat storage.

If you are a previous member and feel you are financially able, we invite you to support the club by registering for a program in anticipation of a shortened season and recognizing the possibility of no season at all. We have an amazing club and all want it to stay “afloat” for upcoming years.

We are counting on our core membership for support.

Best wishes and stay well,

Jo-Anne Costello

The Guelph Rowing Club was established by volunteers in the summer of 1999. The club is committed to establishing a permanent rowing club at Guelph Lake as an ongoing legacy of the facilities and operations established for the 1998 Ontario Summer Games. Guelph Lake is an ideal location for the Guelph Rowing Club. It is a serene body of water of optimum size for a training course, and the beauty of the surrounding landscape adds to the experience of participating in invigorating recreational activities.
