Rowing teams from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario will be competing this weekend at the Head of the Red competition at the Winnipeg Rowing Club.
Beginning on Saturday at 8 a.m., races will commence at the boat launch of 20 Lyndale Drive.
Rowers will be competing in races ranging from 4,000 metres to 6,000 metres at a slower, longer pace.
Teams will consist of competitors from Winnipeg, Pinawa, Kenora, Thunder Bay, Regina, and Saskatoon.
Following the regatta races, clubs will compete in a skills rodeo — marking the first time in Canada that multiple clubs will take part in a skills event.
