Dual of the Latins​

The Dual of the Latins is our last regular season racing opportunity. It is a friendly competition on the Charles River with our fellow Latin scholars from the North. The event also presents an opportunity for BLS parents to showcase whatever BBQ and frialator skills they have honed over the previous weeks at the end-of-season awards ceremony and riverside banquet. Be prepared for the occasional sighting of celebrities such as BLS Athletic Director and/or BLS Headmaster.

  • WHO

    • ALL SQUADS​. 

  • WHERE

    • ARRIVAL: Athletes meet at the BLS Boathouse

    • RACING: The "Powerstretch" course finishes at Magazine Beach. Most spectators choose to watch from there. (There are small parking lots on both sides of the Veterans Memorial Pool, usually enough to accommodate rowing parents. It has traditionally been considered risky to park at Trader Joes/ Micro Center, but perhaps not THAT risky. There is a Starbucks across the street. Pay attention when crossing Memorial Drive as it is hazardous.)

    • AWARDS/ BBQ: The end-of-season awards ceremony and BBQ takes place at the BLS Boathouse.

    • DO NOT PARK in the BLS/ Northeastern boathouse lot. Plenty of parking is readily available a very short walk from the boathouse at the Christian Herter Park. Parking information can be found at www.blscrew.org/bls-boathouse

  • WHEN

    •  Lineups and race times will be posted in the Race Tracker by Thursday evening. 

  • VOLUNTEERS

    • The Dual BBQ involves many more athletes, siblings, parents, and friends than typical regattas. Be prepared to pitch in and stay tuned for a SignUpGenius email on Tuesday evening.
