Rowing the World and The Rowing Concierge can be accessed through www.rowing travel.com or by snail mail at 904 Grosvenor Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba R3M 0N4. The first tour under development will feature rowing in Swiss and Italian lakes in mid-June 2013. This just precedes the FISA World Rowing Tour in Ireland.
