Philadelphia Turn & Burn

  • Hosted By: Philadelphia Children's Foundation


Check-in begins at 8:00 AM.  It will be held in the parking lot between the Gillin Boathouse and the Canoe Club.  Look for our tent.  Pick up your bow marker there.


Racing begins at 10:00 AM.  The schedule has been posted here.


3 Turn races, followed by 3 Burn races for the same events, and so on.

Row your Turn race, turn around and paddle up the west side to the top of the island and marshal for your Burn race 15 minutes later.

Use your Turn bow number for the Burn race, too.

The burn race will be a "quick start".  Instructions will be something like "Attention, Go"

Book drive

Concurrent with this regatta, PCF will be holding a book drive as part of it's "Reading for Success" program.
Please ask all your participants to donate a
new and gently used books for grades K-8 for this program.

We will have bins available in which to leave these at the registration tent.

See the PCF web site for more information on "Reading for Success".

Launching boats

For crews from not using one of the Schuylkill Navy boathouses, the Canoe Club dock is not available.
You may launch your boat from the dock just downstream from Gillin boathouse nearby.  As a result, you may need to walk the boats farther than in the past

After the race

Please return the bow marker to the registration tent and pick up your medals.
