The Royal St. John’s Regatta Committee has been in regular consultation with officials from the City of St. John’s. We have been following closely the ongoing developments resulting in the closure of recreational facilities on the North East Avalon as a result of COVID-19. The health and safety of our athletes, staff and volunteers is paramount.  Therefore, the 2020 Winter/Spring Training Program at the Quidi Vidi boathouse will be suspended effective immediately and until further notice.

Refunds will be provided to crews impacted by the suspension of programming on a pro-rated basis once the final duration of the closure is determined.  We encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause
