Join us for an exceptional championships in a spectacular setting. Race with a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop in a pristine environment. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, abundant wildlife such as porpoise and orca whales, tall trees and rocky islands, Sidney is an adventure playground by the ocean. Come row in a gorgeous setting and be welcomed by warm Canadian hospitality.

Tulista Park in the Town of Sidney is within Greater Victoria and offers an ideal venue for WRCC 2018. A long, straight and gently sloping pebble beach offers the opportunity for the first-ever beach start for the championships. The racing will be on Bazan Bay. While the bay is protected from ocean swells, racers will have challenges of tidal currents, wind, waves and the potential of tricky waters created by the interactions of wind and tide.

Sidney is a safe, compact and friendly community, with all amenities in easy walking distance of the venue. The city of Victoria, a unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences, is only a short distance away. Extend your stay to enjoy the beauty and nature of Vancouver Island and naturally spectacular British Columbia.

We are ready and eager to host the world’s best coastal rowers in October. See you in Sidney!
