TRAILER PARKING 

Boat trailers may park at the regatta site, in Lot E-1, beginning Saturday afternoon, November 3rd. Please park towards the middle of the E-1 lot to allow for regular cars to park nearer the entrance for Saturday evening activities at the UW.  On Sunday morning, trailers may start arriving at 5:00 am and all trailers have the option to move in closer to the entrance of E-1 to stage and unload boats.  Please do not block cars or other trailers however. ALL trailers must remain parked in the E-1 lot during the regatta. If you are arriving with a boat trailer, you MUST contact Michael Cheung at: trailers@headofthelake.org or at 206-909-4097 and provide him with your contact information. It may be necessary to provide the driver with updated parking instructions. You may unload your boats in E-1 and then walk them up towards the shellhouse for rigging in Lot E-8 or in the wood chips area.

CAR TOPPED SHELLS

Car topped boats are highly encouraged to launch and recover from the Waterfront Activities Center (WAC) near the old Canoe House on the south side of Husky Stadium (Parking Lot E-12). Please note: the perimeter road between the
docks and parking lot are for loading/unloading only. Do not leave your vehicles on this road or you will be towed and/or ticketed.

NOTE:

There will be NO trailer parking or launching for out-of-town crews at the Pocock Rowing Center. (This is purely a safety issue)
