2018 World Rowing Coastal Championships, Victoria BC Canada

Join us in Beautiful British Columbia

Sophisticated, a little wild, fascinating and friendly – welcome to Victoria and to Canada!

Join us for an exceptional WRCC 2018 in a spectacular setting. Victoria, Vancouver Island, BC and Canada are iconic tourism destinations. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, abundant wildlife such as orca whales, tall trees and rocky islands, Sidney and Victoria are adventure playgrounds by the ocean. Come to row in a gorgeous setting, and be welcomed by warm Canadian hospitality. Extend your stay to enjoy more of our beautiful province.

The WRCC 2018 will take place in Sidney, about 25 km north of Victoria on the Saanich Peninsula. Victoria is a vibrant city on the edge of nature. Urban, rural and nature blend seamlessly. The Saanich Peninsula, and especially the city of Victoria, boasts fabulous coffee and superb West Coast cuisine – think salmon, locally grown fruit and vegetables, cheeses from Saltspring Island and award-winning BC wines. Victoria is acclaimed as BC’s craft beer capital. Dozens of regional and provincial parks in the area offer quiet and a touch of wilderness. Spend time exploring the nearby Butchart Gardens or learn about totem poles and indigenous history and culture at the Royal BC Museum. This wonderful corner of Canada has it all!
