Welcome to Pittsford Crew's, Pittsford Regatta.    Beginning in 1997 as an exhibition row for the newly formed Pittsford Crew, a high school club, the Pittsford Regatta has grown to the two day event it is today.  Featuring Master rowing on Saturday morning and High school sweep rowing Saturday afternoon and Sunday, the Regatta takes place in the beautiful Village of Pittsford, on the Erie Canal.  This year is our 20th anniversary regatta!

Masters and Scholastic events will have a straight 1200 meter Head Race starting just east of the Mitchell Road Bridge. High School events will follow the same 1200 meter Sprint Race course, running in two lanes beginning just east of the Mitchell Road Bridge.  Maps of the course are in the Venue tab to your left.

Masters events are Head Race style, High School races are two lane Sprint Races with heats.  Due to the growth of the regatta, we run head race time trials leading to sprint race semi-finals and finals.  Saturday the HS Girls fours and Boys eights will compete and Sunday the Boys fours and Girls eights will be on the water.

All races will finish in the center of Pittsford Village along Schoen Place allowing excellent viewing of the finish line.  Also, the entire course is visible from the towpath that follows the canal.  A word of caution: rules prohibiting coaching from shore will be strictly enforced by the USRA race officials.
