With the date confirmation of the Mac 2×4, our indoor regatta schedule is now available.  You can find it in the link to the regatta schedule on the Home page, or I’ve posted it below.

LEANDER INDOORS (Saturday, January 14, 2017 at Leander)
CANADIAN INDOOR ROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS (aka, “CIRC”) (Sunday, February 5th at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga. NOTE: This is Super Bowl Sunday, but all our races will be finished by mid-afternoon in plenty of time for the game!)
MAC 2X4 (Sunday, February 12th, 2017 at McMaster U)
ONTARIO INDOOR ROWING CHAMPIONSHIPS (Saturday, March 4th at Ridley College, St. Catharines)

The Mac 2×4 is a team event where a team of 4 uses one erg to row a combined 8000 metres.  Basically it’s a whole bunch of 20-30 second bursts with each team member rotating in.  It requires teamwork on the transition.  A fun event!  All other indoor events are 2000 metre races.  For novices, there is a big screen for the spectators, with each competition listed and assigned a boat icon on the screen—you can track the athletes on the screen, and the atmosphere gets very LOUD (especially at Ridley!)  I believe something like 22 of our 26 athletes who competed at Ridley last year set a PB (personal best), so it is VERY beneficial!
