The 2018 National Rowing Championships (NRCs) will be held in Burnaby, British Columbia, from November 8-11, 2018. The NRCs are Canada’s National Small Boat Championships, where Canada’s best rowers compete to be named National Champions. Selection to represent Nova Scotia at the NRCs will be highly competitive and highly selective.
The 2018 NRCs have been moved back to the second week of November, due to the late date of the 2018 World Championships. As a result the timing of the 2018 NRC selection event has changed. Selection will take place on Lake Banook on September 22, 2018.
This year, the NRCs will be combined with the Canada Cup. The Canada Cup will be a crew boat event, which will allow athletes from Atlantic Canada to compete as a regional team. Team Atlantic crews will be able to combine forces to take on crews from across Canada; to be eligible for Canada Cup events, athletes must be selected to represent Nova Scotia at the NRCs.
