The race is held on the Erie Canal in Pittsford, NY. The canal is ideal for racing, as it is sheltered flat water with very little boat traffic. All Master's events (singles, doubles, four, and eights) are held over a straight 1200 meter course, run head style.  All Scholastic eights and fours are run in match style over two lanes and a distance of 1200 meters. A bicycle path extends the length of the course for great spectator viewing. The bicycle path is also a great place from which coaches can watch the races. Of course, coaches can not coach from the path during the race, but you knew that already.

If you want to watch the start, we recommend walking down the bicycle path that extends the length of the course.
