This year's regatta package is posted on VCRC's website: and available here.

We're planning to host a yummy spaghetti dinner again on Saturday night. Please let us know how many attendees you expect from your club so we can get an idea of cost - last year was a bargain $10 for spaghetti, caesar salad, garlic bread, drink and delicious dessert. Once again, tickets will be available on-site, and it's first come, first served.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this summer :)
