By May, we're craving the sun beaming on our faces and sand between our toes. What better way than a little competition to beckon you to the shores of Vancouver Lake. Or should we say BIG competition? In a couple of weeks the 2017 USRowing Northwest Youth Championships will be held at Vancouver Lake Regional Park, and in June the Masters will take to the seven-lane course to compete for the regional title.

While the lake is used year-around for training and races, the Youth Championships is Portland Vancouver Rowing Association's largest competition attracting hundreds of athletes and observers.
