Good luck and row fast!


We will not have our big food tent at this event, but we do plan to have bagels and water/gatorade for the rowers so please plan to bring some snacks and drinks for yourself and your kids.  

For those of you new to this regatta, all of the JR boats (our kids) launch at one time and then wait up river for their race.  It looks from the schedule below that all boats launch at 9:30 - so rowers should be at the venue by 7:30.  PLEASE confirm this time with your coach!

You cannot view the race from the launch/trailer site.  Spectators either drive their cars up to the viewing area or they take the shuttle bus.  The shuttle bus drops spectators off at Lovers Leap State Park and you hike up the trail to see the spectacular view from above the racecourse.
