Races all day from 7:20 AM until about 6 PM on ten-minute centers. Sunday, April 19th - races for juniors, masters. Races from about 7:30 AM until 1 PM on ten-minute centers. Racing will end no later than 3 PM regardless of Inclement weather or other delays. A tentative race schedule will soon be available at Enter at between March 1st and the Deadline!!!! April 5th. Look for a 'final' schedule a few days later.

ENTRY LIMITATIONS: With the exception of single sculls, teams are limited to a maximum of one or two entries per event. In addition, all events also have a cap for total entrants. Entries beyond these limits will be wait-listed (and will likely be accepted after entries close). With the exception of single sculls events ($20), all events will cost $10/seat (coxswains free).  In addition we must collect a $2.00 per athlete Oregon State Parks Usage Fee.

Note: there are several new events this year: Junior pairs, mixed masters 2x and 4x, masters novice 4+. All events will be "finals only" except the men's and women's masters singles which will have "heats and finals".
