The Community Recreation Center and Senior Center parking lot will be used as a storage area for boats and trailers only. We are also asking teams to set up their boats in the big, luxurious Leo Ryan Park, located on the north side of the Rec Center. There is grass and an amphitheater for great viewing. Trailers may park overnight (Saturday) at Boat Park. If you plan to row on Saturday, then please park your trailer at Boat Park. The dock will be there for you to launch from. After you launch, you may leave your trailer at Boat Park or move it Rec Center on Sunday morning or Joe will move it for you. There is a wedding at the Rec Center on Saturday afternoon/evening, so there is NO parking for any towing vehicles or trailers on Saturday night at the Rec Center. Please be courteous. All trailer drivers should coordinate with race officials so we know when to expect you. Please call 650-576-4634 or 650-296-8650.
