Remote Nova Scotia Sprints ‘Regatta’

We were saddened to announce the cancellation of the Nova Scotia Sprints – Bud Myra Memorial Regatta in 2020. However, we are excited to organize an alternative event that can be participated in from your
home club. Row NS would like to offer a series of challenges throughout the month of August to our members who would normally have been participants of the Nova Scotia Sprints and extend it to some of our members who would not have competed. Some of these challenges will be more competitive while others will be more participatory. We encourage everyone to participate as much or as little as they would like!

Event #1 – Best “Rowing during Covid” Photo Challenge

Submission Window: August 1st to August 31st

Post a photo at anytime during the submission window of someone (or a group of people) participating in rowing while following all government and RCA Covid protocols! The photo should be posted to social media tagging @RowNovaScotia in it.

Event #2– “Go the Distance” Challenge

Submission Window: August 1st to August 31st

For this event, each athlete will use a recording sheet OR Strava to log their exercise for the duration of the event (see attached for more details). Each type of physical activity is associated with a certain number of points (see scoring sheet). There are also “Bonus Challenges” that will earn you more points. This will be both a club event as well as an individual event. Your activity can be submitted retroactively as long as it is submitted by the end of the submission window.

Event #3 – Skills and Drills Video Challenge

Submission Window: August 3rd to August 9th

For this event, an individual can submit a video for the challenge. The video must show an athlete successfully completing one or more of the skills and drills on our list. The athlete will receive one ballot to a prize draw for each skill that is successfully completed. The videos should be posted to social media tagging @RowNovaScotia.

  • Skill #1: Hand circles (30 in each direction)
  • Skill #2: Seated rigger dips (10 on each side)
  • Skill #3: Standing and clapping overhead (5 claps)
  • Skill #4: Stationary 360 turn (both directions)
  • Skill #5: Stationary roll up (without touching the water)

Event #4 – 200m Sprint

Submission Window: August 10th – August 16th

For this event, any individual registered with RCA and a club can participate. This will need to be done either with a GPS Stroke Coach (a picture taken to submit) OR will need to be verified by a registered coach. You can pick any day or time within the duration of the event to complete
your “race” on your own body of water. It can be done in any safe wind or weather conditions (we suggest choosing wisely). Your race piece should be completed from a dead start. We are aware that the fairness of this event is null – this is more a form of friendly competition that we are hoping all members will be able to enjoy. The top 3 in each category will be given a social media shout out and the winners of each category will receive a small prize.

Submissions can be made on google forms by following this link.

Categories: U19, U23, Open*, PR1, PR2, PR3, Masters (21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61+). The “Open” category is open to everyone (and everyone will be considered). It is specifically geared towards competitive athletes who are 23+, but any athlete is eligible.
