This spring marks the 19th annual Busfield Memorial Regatta started in honor of the donation made by the Busfield/Rees family. On April 13th, 1997 two Vespoli shells were christened as the S. Fenton Busfield and the Ethel S. Busfield, in Owego, NY. This occasion marked the beginning of Binghamton Rowing and the desire to host a regatta. When it all started back in 1998, Binghamton Rowing collaborated with RIT Crew and hosted the first regatta; which happened every spring for two years and then the crews went their separate ways. The original regatta was then replaced by the SUNY Regatta at the Les Wagner Rowing Center. At the 6th annual regatta in 2003, the race was reestablished back to the Busfield Memorial Regatta, bringing back a tradition to Binghamton Rowing.
The race is not a typical 2k race. Instead of stake boats being used there is a floating start with three crews across. Each heats winner will be recieving medals.
