|Participation in the DRC Tour Program is
restricted to members who are currently
enrolled in other programs of
the DRC and member clubs of Row Ontario or Rowing Canada.
There is a
reasonable degree of physical fitness required when one goes on one of
These tours are a source of great delight to those that go on them who
often cherish the memories of the tour and the new friends that they
met, as well as renewing old friendships from long ago. Not only are
there overnight and longer tours there are day tours, especially in the
North Central and Eastern Districts of Row Ontario.
The DRC normally sponsors two such tours, the Ice Breaker the first
Saturday in May and the fall “Scugog Colours” the Saturday a week
before the docks are taken out. Normally only the Hudson T-11s and T-7s
are used on the tours.
The Program fees for current rowing season are determined by the DRC
Board of Directors each January to ensure sustainable rowing
operations. Every attempt has been made to keep the individual tour
fees as low as possible without the tour operating in a deficit
position. Some tours may operate at a deficit but are deemed essential
to our overall operations and are of benefit to the DRC and the sport
of rowing so that all who wish may benefit from our sport.
It is customary for each member to cover their own registration
expenses of going on the tour, as well a contributing to any cost
transporting boats and equipment.
