Mercer Lake/ISA Sculling Championships

  • Hosted By: Princeton National Rowing Association/Mercer
  • 2016 Registered Regatta


  • The Registration window will be February 1 to April 4, 2014 on RegattaCentral.
  • The entry window will be open until April 4 or when an event hits capacity (most events will cap at 14 entries). Entries are taken on a first come first served basis. Consideration may be given to allow the maximum team participation.
  • A maximum of two boats per team can be entered by a team in any event, however if the event has a 7 boat entry cap only one boat entry per team will be allowed.
  • Once and event hits capacity, it will close. Participants who register after an event is closed will be put on a wait list.
  • Late entries (entries entered after April 4) will be accepted as space allows and will be assessed a late fee of $25.00 per late entry. Crews on the wait list prior to close of registration on April 4 will not be charged a late fee. 
  • Entries will NOT be recognized until full payment is made.
  • All registration fees must be received by April 4 will be charged entry deadline. Entries not paid for by this time are subject to possible cancellation. 
  • Scratches received after April 4 deadline will be charged a $25 per entry cancellation fee.
  • Important Note: To avoid registration being blocked by teams who “reserve entry spaces” only to scratch entries at the last minute, any registration not paid in full by March 21, 2014 will be removed from the system. This will be strictly enforced to allow the maximum team participation in the regatta
