The Regatta Committee provides multiple ways for rowers to provide comments or questions to the Regatta Committee, and to other rowers and coxswains. You can post on our FaceBook Page, or use our Bulletin Board - located in the corridors of the Boathouse. If you have a specific question you can contact our Director of Communications:


The RSJRC has been very active in the area of safety over the past ten months. A report has been prepared which provided over a dozen recommendations to assist in the intervention and prevention of an incident / accident within our sport and to keep all participants safe.

The Captain of the Course, Bob Clarke, will oversee the implementation of many of these recommendations. He has already held several meetings regarding safety and will continue with these until all participants have an opportunity to attend. A copy of the Coxswain’s Information Session can be found here. The videos are available here.

The Rules Committee has been requested to review sections of the rules to determine if changes are required to enhance safety. 

We have also established a safety committee whose mandate is to focus on safety practices in our sport. We also encourage every participant to do your part to ensure a safe and enjoyable rowing experience. 


Constructed in 2001, the Royal St. John's Regatta boathouse offers many facilites and caters to the rowing community of the greater St. John's area.
