Note for Coaches:

Please download the participant waiver form from the Regatta Central website.

This is not a USRA regatta, and you must use the waiver form on this website.  (It is the waiver from

the University of Rochester and RIT).   If you are a high school crew, you will have to have parents sign waivers for students. You can bring one waiver per student, then staple them together for each boat.

In order to receive registration materials upon arrival, signed waivers must be handed in on Saturday prior to the practice row or on Sunday prior to racing.
