VCRC Regattas

Victoria City Rowing Club is proud to host two premier rowing regattas each year on Elk Lake.
  • Plan C VCRC Regatta's

    With the COVID-19 pandemic around the world and all restrictions that came with it, the regatta's got cancelled. We are back on the water now and the 'Plan-C' VCRC Regatta series will be some 'simple' in house regatta's without spectators. But we hope it will spice up your training sessions and will be fun to join in on!
