There will be a Food Vendor at the race. Anyone who wishes may bring money to purchase food from the vendor.
All spectators are asked to park at the large parking lot for Qualitrol Company, LLC, next door to the Fairport Crew Club boathouse at 1385 Fairport Road (Route 31F), Fairport, New York. The entire parking lot is available, and is only a short walk on the same side of the street to the boathouse. The entrance is opposite O'Connor Road.
Please do not park at Perinton Park (listed as 'Spectator Parking' in the photograph, below). Crossing Route 31F at that location is risky, and the pavilion is in use this year by another group. For handicapped parking, only, use the upper parking lot at Perinton Park, and walk, or use your wheel chair, on the towpath to get to the boathouse (a relatively level pathway). An aerial photograph showing the correct location of spectator parking is below, beneath this photograph showing parking for competators.
Restrooms are available in Perinton Park and in the boathouse. We ask that all spectators use the Perinton Park restrooms or the portable toilets near the boathouse and reserve the boathouse restrooms for athletes. Below is a photograph showing the correct location for spectator parking.
