Due to the Coronavirus pandemic Row NS was forced to cancel our first on-water regatta of the season, the Ice Breaker Regatta, scheduled for Saturday May 30, 2020. While this is very unfortunate news, we are looking to offer a Virtual Ice Breaker Regatta in its place to engage anyone in Nova Scotia, provide an opportunity for competition, but most importantly have fun and stay active. In typical Ice Breaker Regatta fashion, participants will complete 4.3km, similar to the Around the Lake course on Lake Banook! There will be two options to participate for those with access to an erg, and for those who do not have access to an erg:
- Erg: All age categories will have 1x and mixed 2x events.
- Run/Wheel: All age categories are individual
Rankings will be based on the followed age groupings: Junior (U19), Senior (19+), Masters 1 (27-50), Masters 2 (51+), Para (Open). Anyone is welcome to participate for free, just complete and submit your erg/run/wheel piece between Friday May 29, 2020 at 6:00am (ADT) and Sunday May 31, 2020 at 6:00pm (ADT). To make your submission, complete the form and attach a picture of your Concept2 monitor verifying your erg piece or a picture verifying your time for the run piece (ie – strava, apple watch, garmin, google map, etc) at the link below.
The winners of each event age category will be celebrated on our social media accounts on Monday June 1, 2020. All participants will be entered into a random draw for four gift cards to local businesses in the HRM area and announced and contacted on Monday June 1, 2020.
