OARS Youth Invitational

  • Hosted By: Orlando Area Rowing Society, Inc.
  • 2016 Registered Regatta


Welcome to the 15th Annual OARS Invitational! 

The Orlando Area Rowing Society is delighted to once again host this event at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake on Saturday, March 9th, 2013.

The OARS Invittional Regatta is one of the premier rowing events in the southeast, traditionally attracting more than 1,000 rowers from around Florida and neighboring states.

Racing takes place on a 1500 m on beautiful Turkey Lake, with races starting every 7 minutes. 

At the begining of the lunch break, middle school teams will compete.  These are mixed boats racing on a 1,000 m course

While it is exciting to see the growth of the invitational over the years, it means we must closely monitor the 2 event maximum per rower to ensure the day flows smoothly and ends on time.   While we understand this may not be the ideal scenario for all teams, we hope that it will enhance the overall event experience.   

Please note that all boat trailers should be at the park and in position by 6:45 AM.

The OARS Invitational Regatta is free for all spectators, but there is a $4 fee for parking at Bill Frederick Park.  Spectators are invited to bring chairs or blankets for comfortable viewing along they lake.

Parking and restrooms are available on site. We will also have food and merchandise vendors, as well as the latest toyota vehicles on display from OARS team sponsor, Central Florida Toyota.

For those in need of overnight accommodations, arrangements have been made with a nearby hotel for special rates for regatta participants.  See regatta packet for further details.

We are looking forward to a race day full of excitement and success.  See you on March 9th!
