Regatta Information

In general, rowers should plan to arrive 90 minutes 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 sent to rowers at the week of the event.

  • An early-in-the-week email will provide the links to the Event website, 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..
