- 2016 Registered Regatta
A Brief Regatta History:
The River City Rebellion evolved out of an annual inner club, handicapped race designed to maximize club participation by allowing men and women of all ages to compete against each other in a variety of boat types. Club members all liked the tournament for many reasons:
1. It is fun lining up men and women using sweep or sculls against each other with a chance to win based upon ability.
2. The racing is not just against the people you typically see in your races at the usual regattas.
3. Racing in only small boats creates a friendly atmosphere and camaraderie amongst competitors.
4. Racing three times against different competitors makes each race very interesting and makes for a great early season workout under racing conditions.
5. The racing in the final round is very close and each race is anybody's to win.
In 2008, RCRC decided the turn our little club race into a real regatta. The club has really committed to the Rebellion and many great volunteers turn out to make the regatta a success.
I hope to see you at this year's Rebellion!Joel Griffith - Regatta Director
