Coxswain & Lightweight Weigh-Ins

and lightweight rowers has been extended one hour, from 6 – 9am on
USRA Officials stationed throughout the course
Although safety marshals will continue to be stationed in launches at each of the bridges and throughout the course, USRowing umpires will be the ONLY party giving penalties. They will be stationed on land and at bridges throughout the length of the course.
Launch from any boathouse on Lady Bird Lake
To ease congestion at Festival Beach park, and to make things easier for our Austin-based clubs, you may now launch from any venue on Lady Bird Lake, provided you can safely follow the race-day traffic pattern towards the start line. If you want the best regatta experience and a chance to cheer your teammates in the last 1,000 meters of the race we still encourage your club to claim and utilize boat space and athlete tent space at the regatta venue.
