- 2018 Registered Regatta
For decades, the Long Beach Rowing Association has sponsored the Christmas Regatta in December. A perennial favorite throughout the southwestern United States, and now in its 53rd year, the event is sanctioned by USRowing, follows a sprint race format, and seeks broadest possible participation by the rowing community. The regatta is welcoming to all rowers regardless of age, skill, organizational affiliation, or nationality. Events are offered in Masters, Open (Collegiate and Elite), Lightweight, Juniors, and Novice categories.
The Christmas Regatta consists of 850-meter sprint races. All contemporary sculling (1x, 2x, and 4x) and sweep (2-, 4+, and 8+) boat classes are represented; the obsolete 2+ (“coxed pair”) and increasingly rare 4- (“straight four”) formats are not included given insufficient demand.
In past years, the Christmas Regatta witnessed 467 entries (200 men's, 215 women's, and 52 mixed) with a total of 1630 seats raced and ran from sun-up to sun-down.
Stay tuned for the event schedule coming October 8, 2019. If you have specific questions, please email Kristina Duggan at [email protected].
