Regatta Information

In general, rowers should plan to arrive two hours before their first event of the day or 15 minutes before the team's first event of the day. Coxswains will usually have a coaches & coxswains' meeting to attend early in the day. All information will be available to rowers via the following links:

  • The Event Page, available on this website under the current season's calendar tab. Each event has its own page with detailed information about location, timing, athletes participating, parking, directions, parent volunteer needs, and any specific important information provided by regatta organizers.

  • The Race Tracker, available on each Event Page and created by coaches, with lineups and specific race times for each season's events. Information will typically be filled in on the Race Tracker by Thursday evening for upcoming weekend regattas.

  • An early-in-the-week email via the Google Group, which will provide the links to the Event Page, Race Tracker, Google Maps location, and SignUpGenius for parent volunteers to bring food and provide logistical support. For weekend regattas, this email will typically be sent out on Tuesday evening by the regatta coordinators.
