Scratched Events: Competitors in scratched events will be notified by phone by Thursday, 9/21 If an event is scratched on the day of the regatta, competitors will be offered the opportunity to race for time with another event. Money will be completely refunded for scratched events. Refunds will be mailed after the regatta. Combined events do not qualify as scratched events.


Open Events: Where there are three or more entries in individual categories within open races (e.g., collegiate, master), medals will be awarded as separate events.


Masters Age Handicap: All masters events will be handicapped according to USRowing standards. Open events containing three or more masters entries will constitute separate masters events.


Pre Race Meeting: 8:30 a.m. at the monument in the center of the beach area. All coaches and coxswains must attend. Teams should be prepared to launch for the first event immediately following the meeting (approximately 9:15 a.m.)


Start Time: The first race will begin at 10:00 a.m.


Launching Time: Crews should arrive at the dock 45 minutes prior to the scheduled start time to ensure on time arrival at the start.


Dock Procedure: Launch Docks Are located on the west side of the beach. Competitors are also welcome to use the beach for wet launching. Recovery docks are located on the east side of the beach.


Passing Rules; In the event a crew wishes to pass a slower crew they must do so by going to the outside of the slower boat. Our course has one gentle right hand turn- therefore overtaking crews will go left of the crew they are passing. Improper passing and other unsportsmanlike conduct can result in time penalties or disqualification.


Very Important*

High School Age Participants: Please note: Due to new NCAA guidelines Junior/ High School Age participants may not compete in the same events as NCAA athletes. Therefore we have reclassified certain events as “ Collegiate” in order to accommodate these concerns.
