Reminder to all coaches:

1. Please remind your athletes to stay within the traffic pattern loop in the warm-up area and not go into the back cove or near shore.

 2. Check equipment readiness/compliance prior to launching, this includes heel ties and bow balls. Anticipate that these will be checked prior to launching.


UPDATE: Sunday, May 21; 7:37am

We’ve updated the lanes to accommodate the wind. We will seed boats 1 through 6, with the fastest boat in lane 1. All lane assignments have been updated in HereNow.


UPDATE: Saturday, May 20; 9:16pm

Tomorrow (Saturday, May 20) we will operate as though we will race every event, however we have contingency plans:

  • If needed, we will award bids to Youth Nationals based on the last completed round of racing, which includes TT.
  • Coaches are reminded to be responsible for knowing the limitations of their crews/athletes and scratching if prudent, even if the event is not cancelled.
  • We are aware of the weather forecasts, have been monitoring it, and will continue to monitor throughout the weekend. Coaches and athletes should monitor their messages for updates.

Please read the following carefully:

  • If we are unable to run semis on Saturday, we will run semis for events with 20+ entries first thing Sunday morning.
  • If we are unable to run any races on Saturday afternoon we will run semi final races with 20+ entries on Sunday morning. We will use the finals time slots on Sunday for the non-qualifying events and use qualifying events with 4 or fewer entries for flights for non-qualifier events that had heats. The finals-only non-qualifying events will run as scheduled. USRowing, the council, and chief referee will determine the priority of events. We will try to balance sweep and scull. Medals and points will not be awarded for flights.
  • In the event that we do not run the finals for qualifying events with 4 or fewer entries, we will still run the inclusive 2x.

Coach/Support Staff Roster Reminder

As it was in 2022, USRowing is asking all coaches and support staff who will need access to the team restricted areas, such as the launch and recovery docks & trailer areas etc., to also register for this event on RegattaCentral. When logging in, you will see on the left hand side of the webpage, a tab  that is labeled “SafeSport”, where you will input coach and support staff names, and then SafeSport compliance will be checked. All coaches and support staff must be on this list prior to the start of the event, and must be compliant with the Safesport requirements, to receive accreditation wristbands upon arrival to the venue.
