Dave Calder is no stranger to rowing success. The four-time Olympian for Canada famously took silver along with Scott Frandsen in the men’s pair in 2008, just behind the legendary Drew Ginn and Duncan Free of Australia. Now he’s entering a new chapter in his rowing life, as executive director at Rowing British Columbia, following four years at the St. Michaels University School Community Rowing Center and the Gorge Narrows Rowing Club. Prior to this role, Calder served on the board of Rowing British Columbia in 2016.
A sea change is coming. It’s something you’ve likely seen before, just in a different form. You’ve seen it in the evolution of every new idea, every innovation, and it shifts the paradigm just enough to let a breakthrough happen. For Paralympic rowing, this change is happening now, and when it is over our sport could wind up looking dramatically different than it does today.
