Athletes are permitted to race only in 1 sweep event and 1 sculling event. 




  • The regatta will not be able to happen without the help from dedicated volunteers; all participating teams must provide volunteers to stakeboat hold, assist at the launch/recovery docks, and/or help at the finish line.

Friday practice and boat trailer dropoff: 

  • You are encouraged to drop off your trailers and equipment in advance of race day (there will be overnight security on the island). Boat trailer drop off time is 12:00pm-7:30pm. Contact [email protected] if you need to schedule an alternate time.  
  • The course will be open for practice on Friday. Launch docks for our FSRA crews will be open from 3:00pm-6:45pm. All boats must be off the water by 7:30pm.

Team tents & food trailers: SITE PLAN

  • Team teants will be lined up along the Eastern Shoreline (along Cattleman Rd.)
  • Vehicles cannot remain in the team tent area for the duration of the event. 
    • Food trailer drop off: prior to 7:00 am Saturday, April 1 (meet at the yellow dot on the site plan)
      • Trailers can be scheduled to be dropped off earlier. You are not advised to unload anything prior to Saturday morning as the security guard will remain on the island overnight.  


Seeding for the 2017 State Championship 

  • Teams must have an entry and row in that event in order to be seeded for States. In the circumstance that any event only has one (1) entry at Districts, that boat must still compete in order to get seeded. In an effort to stay most efficient with everyone's time at Districts, events that only have 1 entry may be combined and run together. If necessary, this schedule adjustment will be made following the close of registration and crews will be notified accordingly.
