Collegiate Covered Bridge Regatta

  • Hosted By: Oregon Association of Rowers
  • 2016 Registered Regatta

Saturday, April 11th we will be hosting the Collegiate Covered Bridge Regatta including races for collegiate fours and eights as well as open 1x and open 2- events. All races will use our fully buoyed, 7-lane, 2000m Dexter Lake race course. Morning and afternoon sessions will allow most events to run two flights - for example, allowing two races for your varsity eight. A tentative race schedule will soon be available. Enter between March 1st and the Deadline!!! of March 29th. Look for a 'final' schedule a few days later.

Depending on the number of entries, all (or most) events will be rowed twice -  once in the morning and once in the afternoon. We will attempt to make competitive races against differing crews for morning/afternoon events.

With the exception of single sculls events ($30), all events will cost $15/seat (coxswains free).  In addition we must collect a $2.00 per athlete Oregon State Parks Usage Fee.


[The masters/juniors Covered Bridge Regatta will take place on Saturday and Sunday April 18th,19th and is listed separately on]
