The year 2015 will mark the 52st running of the Placentia Regatta. Even though the Regatta itself is only 51 years old, the sport of rowing in the Placentia area has been around for well over 100 years. Back in 1877 a determined group of Placentia fishermen carried their boat on their backs to St. John's, won the Championship and carried their boat back home. This tremendous feat was replicated in 1977 by the Placentia Lions who carried a boat to St. Johns and won the Championship. It marked the second straight year that the Lions Crew had won the Triple Crown of Rowing, meaning they had won the mens senior Championship in all three fixed-seat rowing Regattas (Placentia, Harbour Grace and St. John's.)
