About MBRC

         About   Maple Bay Rowing Club        

Mission Statement: "The Maple Bay Rowing Club,  through a community based and volunteer driven approach, inspires a love of rowing, recreational and competitive, in people of all ages through coaching and mutual support with an emphasis on safety and enjoyment in a sheltered natural setting."

Since 1975 Maple Bay Rowing Club has worked to develop the sport of rowing in Maple Bay near Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island.  Our members come from the mid Vancouver Island area to enjoy Rowing’s many health, fitness and social benefits.  Club activities and programs focus on Junior and Master Rowers.  Rowing education is a major focus of our club.  We’ve designed the program so that rowers receive individual attention to progress quickly from beginner to rowing independently on the water.

MBRC is administered by an 11 member volunteer board of directors that meets monthly.  These meetings and the recorded minutes are open to all club members.
