Gifford Pinchot Sprint Regatta

  • Hosted By: Susquehanna Rowing Association


Saturday, April 27th, 2024.

The Event:


Susquehanna Rowing Association is pleased to continue the tradition of hosting collegiate racing in the heart of Pennsylvania.  This event is open to all college crew teams and clubs.  With two years of post covid racing, a strong collection of collegiate teams have become part of this regatta.   The beautiful lake at Gifford Pinchot State Park typically offers excellent rowing conditions with great spectator views of the last 500 with ample free parking for team buses, trailers and fans.  



2024 UPDATE:  Due to construction, all race day activities will take place from the Gifford Pinchot State Park, Conewago Day Use Area for 2024.  It is directly across the lake from the Quaker Race Day Use Area.   Use 1185 Alpine Road Lewisberry, PA to get there by GPS.   Free parking and ample room for trailers and buses is available at the Conewago Day Use area as in previous years. 



The official Gifford Pinchot Sprints Regatta t-shirt will be available for purchase the day of the regatta. Please stop by the merchandise table to check them out!


Gifford Pinchot Sprints will follow all rules set forth by USRowing for the 2023-2024 year.


The Course:

A 2000-meter, 6-lane course consisting of 3 buoy lines has been installed for the regatta. Teams will launch from the Conewago Day Use Area and row the length of the course to the start line/holding area. They will then turn around, line up, and race through the finish line, which is directly in front of the Conewago Day Use Area.

See the Venue tab for a map of the lake with parking and directions.

Coaches & Coxswains Meeting:

The C&C meeting is scheduled for Saturday morning at 8:00am in the restroom and vending pavilion of the Quaker Race Day Use area.
