The Canadian National Rowing Championships have acquired RBC Royal Bank as title sponsor for the second consecutive year.
The regatta, taking place from 11th to 13th November, sees hundreds of rowers – including those hoping to represent Canada in the Olympics – participate at Welland International Flatwater Centre in Ontario.
“RBC is thrilled to be supporting the National Rowing Championships regatta,” said Doug Bugler, regional vice president for Niagara, RBC. “We have a long, proud history of supporting Olympic athletes and the National Rowing Championships represent our core values of excellence, teamwork and diversity.”
The small-boat regatta involves rowers competing in single or pair boats. A prize donation of US$19,500 is on offer during the regatta which will provide successful athletes with training and development funding in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games.
