May 5th marks the start of the on water paddling season for Rowbust! After a long and bitterly cold winter we are very happy to be back in our boats ramping up our training for another busy summer!
We must send a big Thank You to Jim and the staff at Movati Athletic, our winter home. Our trainers, Rosa & Chantel, have been pushing us all winter to get stronger and preparing us to hit the water fit! THANK YOU!
Our summer home, the Fanshawe Yacht Club on beautiful Fanshawe Lake, is already buzzing with excitement as we return for the 2015 paddling season.
On Sunday May 24th two Rowbust crews will compete at the Outer Harbour Women's Festival at Heart Lake. Traditionally this is a rite of passage for our 2015 newbies. They will finally know what all these crazy women have been talking about all winter and get to feel the rush of excitement and FU...N! that comes with it! It is an exciting day for all of Rowbust.
A few more highlights of the coming season:
- Canadian Nationals in Welland, ON June 26 to 28th where we will defend our title as the FIVE TIME reigning Champions in the BCS division.
- A contingent of Rowbusters will travel to Burlington, Vermont for their festival on August 1 & 2. We first met the Burlington, Vermont BCS team on the water in Italy last summer and we're excited to see them again.
- August 14 to 16 Rowbust will compete in the 2nd Pan American Dragon Boat Championships in Welland, ON. www.panamdragonboat.org/
Also this season is the 4th annual Fanshawe Dragon Boat Festival hosted by Rowbust on Saturday June 13th. For more information on this event check out the website at
