The Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club (TRPC) is excited to announce that we have officially launched our 2019 on-water season! The club and its coaches are eager to get everyone out on the water in the warm, summer conditions. TRPC is a not for profit organization in its sixth year of operation and has been rapidly growing year after year, initiating people of all ages to the sports of rowing, paddling and dragon boating.
You can do it all at TRPC; stand up paddle boarding (SUP), rowing, canoeing, kayaking, and even dragon boating are all water sports we specialize in. Open hours are available for members to come in and sign out equipment or they can enjoy a lively social environment during the group sessions in the evening hours. The Club may offer off-site excursions for paddlers and festivals for Dragon Boat members.
TRPC is now offering rentals for residents and tourists that are not members of the club. This is our second year offering this service. The club realizes that tourists and others want to be able to get out on the water without the commitment of a membership, to enjoy one of our city’s greatest assets, the waters of the Trent River that runs right through the heart of Trenton and the beautiful Bay of Quinte. You will be able to book equipment and a date and time right from the website at www.trentonrowingandpaddling.ca
The popular group paddles are back on Wednesdays and Fridays, including the popular Paddle and Potluck every second Friday. Work up a thirst during a solid paddle workout and come off the water ready for a BBQ with the group. On the rowing side, Registration for the Learn to Row program, a five-week course that turns you from a beginner to a recreational rower is available by appointment to our rowing coach, Christian, who can be contacted at 613-849-1173 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can sign up online for $150. The Dragon Boat team goes out on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from the Trent Port Marina.
