the story

The McGill University Rowing Team is composed of hardworking student-athletes and coaches dedicated to excelling in the sport of rowing. While some of us were introduced to the sport early on, others of us have backgrounds in different sports. Nonetheless, we are united through our passion for rowing and our willingness to challenge our limits, all the while upholding and respecting the highest student-athlete standards. We train throughout the year, both on and off the water, to be able to excel at various regattas and represent McGill throughout the rowing world.

After a great performance at the Canadian University Rowing Championships (CURCs) in 2016, our top athletes will once again have the opportunity to showcase their handiwork and represent McGill at this regatta on November 4 and 5, in Burnaby, BC. We hope to support our teammates by reducing the costs of their travel to the CURCs. With your help, we can send our rowers to once again represent McGill in a highly competitive national regatta!
