Parking

 

The Garden State Scholastic Championships take place on Saturday and is a large regatta. We will not be able to park our trailers until they clear out.  Please follow the instructions of those directing the parking of trailers.  We hope to have the trailers in line one behind the other so there are aisles for crews to walk to and from the trailers and docks easily.  The first trailers in should back up to the walkway and continue to pull in next to each other going around the perimeter of staging area.  Once we bring the trailers all the way around we will back trailers into place in front of those on the perimeter.  Please leave about 12 feet side to side and enough room back to front to get your boats out of the center racks.  Once your trailer is parked the truck must move out onto the street in the designated parking area.  Please be courteous when parking as we need to get quite a few trailers into this area.  Allow room for neighbors.

 

The street will not be closed.  Team vehicles, buses and vans, plus tow vehicles with passes will park in the area with the no parking signs in the finish line and staging areas.  We will be handing out parking passes as you bring your trailer into the staging area.  All parents will park in the street and parking lots going up the course from the finish line area.
