  • Most of the road construction on U.S. Highway 41 through Green Bay has been completed.  However, there is ongoing construction on U.S 43 near Sheyboygan, and on U.S. Highway 41 through the Fox Cities. We strongly suggest everyone, especially those lucky people hauling boats, check out the Wisconsin DOT website

The second video was filmed at the 2014 Masters National Regatta in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and provides some good examples of boats docking on the Grand River:

It is our goal to keep all boats docking safely and efficiently throughout the regatta.  Help us help you by reviewing these materials. If you have questions, please speak with a dockmaster at the coaches/coxswain meeting, or feel free to email us.
