7th Annual Springfield Riverfront Regatta
- Sep 10, 2011
- Connecticut River
- Longmeadow, MA (USA)
- Hosted By: Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club
Here are some event descriptions to help when registering:Master's Events: These events are for rowers who are 'experienced' in life and sport. Many of the events are broken into age ranges to better facilitate safe, fun and competitive events. In Master's event with an open-ended range, a standard USRowing handicapping formula is used. In team boats, the ages are averaged. The rower's age is as of 12/31.Newbie Events: These events are for hold (young and old) who have not raced before this year. This again allows for a safe, fun and competitive experience. We have found our event to be very accommodating for newbies. Between the ease of steering the course, the volunteer:participant ratio and the laid-back nature of this early Fall event, newbies have been excited to have made the decision to join us for the experience. It gives great confidence that 'they can do it.'Adaptive Events: These events are for all adaptive rowers. The events will remain on the full 3-mile course and are integrated into the race day schedule. While we have volunteers available to be sure on-land needs are met, we depend on the rowers being self-sufficient on the water. Please, contact the regatta organizer (email@example.com) for questions or to let us know of specific needs and interests.
