Please note: The order of events is constructed to ensure that Masters athletes have opportunities to race multiple times in a single day. We're adding gaps here and there to protect expected progressions that include:

  • 1x -> 2x/Mx2x -> 4x/Mx4x
  • 2- -> 4+/Mx4+ -> 8+/Mx8+

Knowing that racing opportunities in the Southeast are a bit scarce, we want a schedule that allows athletes to choose 2 or 3 events, as they choose, without tight hot seats. It does increase the total schedule a bit, but we will still hold this to a single day event for your planning purposes. 

ORRA will maintain and award all Age Groups, from AA to K. Smaller events may be combined. We will use official handicap rules and an official time service (HereNow). As every event is straight to final, we will use random draws for bow numbers.

Masters Crews shall be classified by age according to the following categories:

USRowing Masters Age Categories
(AA) 21 to 26 years, (C) 43 to 49 years, (F) 60 to 64 years, (I) 75 to 79 years,
(A) 27 to 35 years, (D) 50 to 54 years, (G) 65 to 69 years, (J) 80 to 84 years, and
(B) 36 to 42 years, (E) 55 to 59 years, (H) 70 to 74 years, (K) 85 and over.

The Dogwood Masters Classic is a competitive regional event on our FISA-compliant sprint course. Join us for a day of racing as teams prepare for the USRowing Masters Regional Events later in June, and USRowing Masters Nationals later this summer. The Dogwood Masters Classic is also a great opportunity to reunite with old friends and make new friends. Please make plans to join us for a great annual event.

There is no scratch fee for changes prior to the close of regular registration.
