The venue for this event is now at the Grand Rapids Rowing Association boathouse, located at 291 North Park Street NW. Find detailed directions and a map on the "Directions and Parking" tab on this RegattaCentral site or at http://www.grrowing.org/boathouse/directions.
Trailers will be directed to park along the west edge of the boathouse parking lot. Shells may be laid down in the parking lot and in the field immediately to the south.
All vehicles (other than tow vehicles) will park in the field to the south of the boathouse and parking lot, and in the field to the east of the entrance drive. Watch for parking attendants giving directions and do not pass caution tape or cones that are meant to restrict automobile traffic. Team tents may be set up to the north and west of the boathouse, or in the lower field across from the boathouse.
The HQ tent, vendors, and colleges will be set up to the north of the approach pathway to the dock. Bow #s and shell check will be done on the way to the dock.
All launching and landing will be done upstream. Crews will row upstream to a set of wires, at which point they will turn and get into the field for racing. The start is a few hundred meters upstream of the dock, and racing will head downstream past the dock to a point close to the North Park bridge.
After finishing, crews will turn to starboard and return to the dock along the west side of the river.
