Tampa Mayors Cup

  • Hosted By The Stewards Foundation
  • USRowing Registered

The Stewards Foundation, Inc will host the Fifth Annual Tampa Mayor’s Cup Rowing Regatta at Tampa's, Harney Park Bypass Canal Racecourse on Saturday, March 17, 2012. The Tampa Mayor’s Cup is one of the premiere rowing events in the state of Florida and Southeastern United States. Many of the competitors are from the Northeast testing their skills after completing spring training in the Tampa Bay area.

The racecourse hosts a 1000 and 1500 meter-buoyed and protected course. Over 750 rowing athletes and over 2000 spectators will be on hand to participate in this event. The competition includes separate events for Juniors, Colleges and Masters. There is on site parking at the Harney Park. In addition, bleachers and vendors will set up for spectators and teams alike.

Why you should race in the Mayor’s Cup

  • Great competition – the best rowers in each category will be here!
  • Great water – the Bypass Canal is well protected so the water conditions are ideal
  • Great support – we take pride in having great referees and volunteers focused on making the regatta very rower friendly and efficient
  • Great fun – the environs make a great way to interact with other athletes and spectators
  • Great food - we will have even better food available this year

 

Why you should enter early

We are reserving tent locations this year to assist the visiting teams in getting space.  The sooner you enter the better location your organization will receive.  Likewise, requests for hot seating will be processing in the order of the entry so the earlier you register the better your chances for getting the hot seating arrangement you desire.

Loan a launch and race for free

As with any regatta of this size we need launches for the various on-water operations. In order to have sufficient launches we will waive one entry fee for each launch supplied. The launch must have all the normal equipment including a driver, life jackets, all safety equipment, operating motor and full fuel tank. You can offer a launch by completing the form online at RowTampa.com/The-Mayors-Cup/

Lunch Available

This year we are offering the option to pre-order lunches.  The lunch was well received last year.  The lunch consists of one hamburger or two hot dogs, a bag of chips and a bottle of water.  The lunch can be ordered with your registration either online at RegattaCentral or via postal mail at RowTampa.  The cost is $4 per lunch if ordered in advance and $5 on the day of the regatta.

Equipment Loan

Another improvement we have made for this year is to post equipment loan requests.  You can request equipment and, most importantly, offer to loan your equipment to other organizations.  To make a request for equipment go to rowtampa.com/equipment-request/.  To view the current equipment requests go to rowtampa.com/requested-equipment/.
