Friendships, wine-tasting and singing on the World Rowing Tour

The 2022 World Rowing Tour took place in Canada on Lake Ontario around the Bay of Quinte and the ‘Thousand Islands’. Running from 10-18 September, there were six days of rowing and many off-water activities. Runcorn RC member Sue Sljivic, the only UK participant among 50 other rowers from 12 countries, reflects on why she had such a great time.

Boats, distances, schedules and crews

The tour was extremely well organised by World Rowing and Ontario Adventure Rowing with support from Rowing Canada Aviron; there had even been a complete run-through of the route the previous year. An helpful team supported the tourists with logistics throughout.

We rowed in coastal coxed quads, which were ideal for the mixed weather, open water sections of the route and beach landings. On average, the crews covered about 30km a day; the longest day was 39 kms. The total distance covered over the six days of rowing was 185km.
