Welcome to Pittsford Crew's, Pull the Plug Regatta, so named as it is the last weekend before the New York State Canal Corporation, 'Pulls the Plug' on the Erie Canal and drains it for the season.  Join us for an end the season head race through the picturesque Village of Pittsford.  The event's base is the William C. Warren III Boathouse on Clover Street across from Lock 32 on the Erie Canal.  From the boathouse, crews will travel the length of the course to the start line 4110 meters to the flood gates approaching the hamlet of Bushnell's Basin.  The race course is then run westbound through the village back to the finish line at the boathouse.  The entire race course is visible from the tow path.  Parents, coaches and spectators can watch from anywhere along the path!  We hope to see you for a great end of the season regatta!

The trailer parking and boat launching will take place at the William C. Warren III Boathouse at 2800 Clover Street.  Directions are available on the web at: http://pittsfordcrew.org/MapsDirections.htm

Note: Trailers must approach from the North (heading southbound on Clover Street) in order to make the turn onto the access road.    We have limited space for parking at the boathouse, therefore, only one hospitality vehicle per team will be allowed to park at the boathouse and will need a permit.  For this and any other special needs parking, please contact the regatta coordinator listed on Regatta Central.  If your team will be arriving by bus, please contact the regatta organizer, so parking arrangements can be made.   All requests must be received one week before the regatta to allow for mailing of the permit.  If you have a truck pulling a trailer, it does not need a permit. All other parking will be across the street on the DOT Access road, or the Lock 32 Park.  There will be volunteers available to direct you.
