Rowers eyeing spots on Canadian national teams will be taking to Elk Lake this weekend.
Victoria City Rowing Club is hosting the 2019 Speed Orders.
The small-boat event is required for athletes looking to crack a spot on Rowing Canada Aviron’s Pan American Games, World Rowing Under-23 Championships and the under-21 Trans-Tasman Regatta crews.
Over 90 of the country’s top up-and-coming rowers are set to compete, according to a news release from Rowing Canada. The event will determine which rowers will participate in a selection camp the following week.
Time trials begin Friday, with more competitions and semi-finals getting underway Saturday before Sunday’s finals.
