Lift Bridge Regatta

  • Hosted By: Fairport Crew Club Inc.
  • 2016 Registered Regatta


Parking for participants, especially those with boats on their cars, will be in the parking lot adjacent to the Fairport Crew Club boathouse on Route 31, Fairport, New York, on the west side of the Erie Canal. Look for the AMF Bowling sign, and turn in there -- parking lot attendants will direct you to parking.

The lot for spectators will be at the Qualitrol parking lot, approximately 50 yards west of the bowling alley. A paved walkway leads from the back lot of Qualitrol to the parking lots just below the Fairport Crew boathouse.

Additional parking is at the lower lot of Perinton Park.  Crossing 31F from the Perinton Park lot is prohibited.  All rowers and spectators are required to walk up the hill, past the playground and tennis courts to the canal and cross under the bridge on the canal path.

Dropping Off Rowers

Those dropping off rowers will be able to do so at the AMF Bowling center. Enter the parking lot and follow the attendents' directions to the turn-around, where you can drop off your rower, and then depart to the spectator parking lot to the west of the bowling alley.

Handicapped Parking

Handicapped parking is available in the parking lot adjacent to the Fairport Crew Club boathouse. It does, however, require walking or wheeling uphill to get to the boathouse and spectator area. Handicapped parking is also available at the upper level of Perinton Park. See the map under "Venue" for the location.

Additional spectator areas are available along the Erie Canal Path from the start line to the finish line in the Village of Fairport. The Village has a parking lot next to the Erie Canal at the finish line.
