2020 National Rowing Championships, Canada Cup Stroking To Welland

WELLAND – The City of Welland has been awarded the 2020 National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup, which will take place September 17 to 21, 2020, at the Welland South Canal.

Welland last hosted the National Rowing Championships in 2013, and has been the site of multiple Row Ontario provincial championships as well as the 2017 Canadian University Rowing Championships.

“The City of Welland is excited and proud to have been selected to host our national rowing athletes in September at the RCA National Championships and Canada Cup Regatta,” said Mayor Frank Campion. “Our Organizing Committee will be working diligently with Rowing Canada Aviron to ensure a positive experience and championship regatta for all in attendance. Welland’s flatwater courses are recognized internationally as among the best in the world.”

“RCA is extremely pleased to announce the venue and host of the 2020 National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup,” added Rowing Canada Aviron CEO, Terry Dillon. “It will be the first time since 2014 that this event will be held outside of British Columbia, so we are expecting strong participation from central and eastern Canada. The City of Welland is an experienced event host and we are confident the Organizing Committee will deliver an outstanding National event.”

The 2020 National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup will follow the same format as 2019, with the 2000m National Rowing Championship small boat races (singles and pairs) contested from September 17 to 20, and the 500m Canada Cup big boat races (quads and eights) completed on September 21.

Medalists will once again be celebrated at the annual Athlete Awards Banquet and top performances will be recognized with RCA’s six National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup trophies.
