PARKING

There will be numerous parking lots surrounding Conibear Shellhouse. Spectators may use lots E-1 and E-12.

Do not park in the following areas:

  • E-11 No parking due to ongoing construction
  • E-6 parking is not allowed. All vehicles will be towed from lot E-6
  • E-8 will be availble for boat rigging only (parking lot next to Conibear Shellhouse)

TRAILERS

Trailers may arrive and start parking in Lot E-1, north of Conibear Shellhouse on Saturday afternoon, beginning at 12:00 pm.  All trailers MUST park at the most northernmost end of the E-1 lot. PLEASE do not park your trailer in the middle of the lot or at the south end of the lot.

On Sunday morning trailers may move closer to the shell house to unload boats but the trailers must remain parked in the E-1 lot during the regatta.  If you are arriving with a boat trailer, you MUST contact Michael Cheung at:  trailers@headofthelake.org or at 206-909-4097 and provide him with your contact information.

It may be necessary to provide you with updated parking instructions and this also allows us to monitor how many trailers will be arriving. This parking area (E-1) will be used by other individuals attending events at the UW during the weekend.

Lot E-8 and the wood chips area are for shells only-- NO trailers!

CAR TOPPING

Car topped boats are highly encouraged to launch and recover from the Waterfront Activities Center near the old Canoe House on the south side of Husky Stadium (Parking Lot E-12).  Please note: the perimeter road between the docks and parking lot are for loading/unloading only.  Do not leave your vehicles on this road or you will be towed and/or ticketed.

NOTE: There will be no trailer parking or launching for out-of-town crews at the Pocock Rowing Center. (This is purely a safety issue)
