Coaches and Coxwain's meeting will be held at 8:00am in front of the ORRA boathouse bay doors.  The first race will start at around 9:00am.  No boats with similar rowers (ex..~ women's 1x and 4x or men's 2- and mixed 4+) will be less than 1 hour apart. 

Sunday- Challenge yourself or your crew to the Rocky Top Half Marathon!  Paddled (i.e. kayaks, ect) and rowed boats welcome in any size.  Enjoy the beautiful water and colors as you row upriver on our out-and-back 21km coarse.

Sweep: $60

Competitors will gather at the boathouse at 9:00am for briefing and launch for warm-up from there.  Call to the line for 8+s and 4x's will be at 9:20am with 4+'s, 2x's, 2-'s to go at 9:25am and all singles at 9:30.  There will be at least one support boat with water and first-aid near the turn-around.
