The Vancouver Rowing Club was built in 1911 and is rich with history and beauty.  This unique, nautical building is at the edge of the waters of Coal Harbour and nestled within the world-famous Stanley Park, recently named the Best Park in the World by theTripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.  With stunning views of Coal Harbour, the outstanding character and location of the Vancouver Rowing Club made it an easy venue choice and ensures that Zaui Connect will be a unique, enjoyable, and beneficial event for everyone. To learn more about the Vancouver Rowing Club or see more pictures, you can visit this post by Vancouver Blogger, Miss604, about the Vancouver Icon.


In addition to the beautiful location and structure of the Vancouver Rowing Club, it is also extremely easy to get to from anywhere within Vancouver.  From the downtown core you should be able to get to the VRC by car in 5-10 minutes, on foot (a beautiful walk!) in under 25 minutes, or by public transit in under 15 minutes.
