Rower Travel Schedule

Rowers report to the bus at W-L concession stand (bad drop off site on Stafford Street) at 5AM on FRIDAY 2 June. We will have to inspect luggage, make a final check of paperwork and load the bus at that time. Please be prompt.

It is a 9 hour drive to get to St. Catharine’s. Please pack a lunch for your rower and give them some money for when we stop on the way up and on the way back to buy snacks.  They will probably want some money to buy t-shirts or other stuff at the regatta as well.


The team will be staying at the Brock University Niagara Region, 1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way, St. Catharines, ON, L2S 3A1 Canada.

We have coordinators handling food: bagels, juice, fruit for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and either grill back at the dorm or go out for dinner in the evening.  The food charge is included in the rower fee.  Please send your rower with additional money for t-shirts, other expenses as appropriate.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers will be needed to assist with food preparation, serving, and clean-up, as well as for other tasks.

Border Crossing Requirements

Passports: have your rower bring them if they have them. If they are 18 years old, they are required for entry back into the United States.  For those under 18, a picture ID and birth certificate will also work but a U.S. Passport is preferable.
