Trailer Parking

  • Trailers should be parked to the south east side of the UMN Boathouse
  • Trailers can be parked on Friday evening.   We have not hired private security and cannot guarantee safety of the equipment but UMN Campus and Minneapolis Park Police regularly patrol the area around the boathouse.  (note: We regularly park our trailer full of boats outside of the boathouse.)   If needed, you may store any valuable tool boxes or other small items in the boathouse overnight. 
  • All college teams are required to launch from the UMN dock. 
  • Let us know know when you plan to arrive so we can help with parking, etc.

Race Schedule and Map

  • We will be sending out an updated race schedule later in the week after entries are complete. We do not expect any major changes, other than canceling races with no entries. 
  • Race map is located in the 'venue' section.
