GRAVENHURST — Looking for a chance to spread your wings without impacting your friends and loved ones?

Saturday at Gull Lake Rotary Park the Georgian Bay Rowing Club is hosting a regatta with rowers from across Ontario.

The Muskoka Fall Classic is a great opportunity to experience the feel of the Olympics this of Tokyo.

Previously hosted by the Severn Rowing Club, which has merged with their friends in Midland and Penetanguishene, the event offers several classes of races all day.

“We’re excited to send out this ‘save the date’ to members of the Ontario rowing community for the upcoming regatta schedule,” said Andrew Backer, Row Ontario CEO.

“It’s been almost two years since regattas were hosted in Ontario and we’re really looking forward to seeing Ontario rowers back in boats and competing with each other. There’s a good variety of events on the schedule in a short time period, so it will be exciting to see how all these regattas play out over the next few months.”

Rower Kathryn McGill and her parents Dave and Margaret Barr were avid fans in 2019 when the Severn Rowing Club hosted the last regatta at Gull Lake Rotary Park. ( file photos)
Rowers from several Ontario clubs will be competing again all day Sunday at the event hosted by the Georgian Bay Rowing Club.
Several classes of races will be run on the 3.0 kilometre course that runs from the beach and behind the Barge.
The beach, the hill and the lake at the park are a perfect setting to race boats and watch the regatta.
