The Nelson Rowing Club is known throughout the rowing community for its ultra-laid back attitude and its amazing potlucks, featured annually for participants of the Nelson Sprints Regatta. Clubs arrive from throughout the Pacific Northwest to attend this lively and entertaining event and stay for the community salad and NBC brews.

Among the Nelson Rowing Club’s members, the juniors carry out the most race preparation — conditioning for both endurance and speed on the water. Their typical workout includes steady-state rowing to train the aerobic system, yoga to develop proper alignment and breath, as well as weight training to build strength and stamina.

On August 10, the Nelson Rowing Club Juniors as well as adults members will be racing down the West Arm in an all-sprint, alongside members of the Coeur d’Alene, Nicomekl, Vernon and Kamloops Rowing Clubs. Rowers will sprint 1,000 m to the finish — the races being visible from shore early morning to mid-afternoon. Come check out the boats and a day of racing down at Lakeside Park with the Nelson Rowing Club on Saturday, August 10.
