2018 Venue Information




  Thank you for attending the Garden States Scholastic Championships, we are looking forward to a great day of racing.  The regatta schedule is now posted and located here: 


General regatta information is now updated on regatta central under  the news and venue information.

  At this time the Cooper River is under construction which has caused for relocations of the team trailers and food tents.  Attached are the maps which indicate where these new areas are located.  The Cooper River venue vision plan details are located here: .

Team Buses

  All buses will be instructed to drop off the athletes and drive around to the Yacht Club the opposite side of the river and park there. 


All vehicles will park on the shoulder of North Park Drive starting at the finish line and moving west towards the start line.

Team Trailers

  Team trailers and boat storage will be located at the staging area located at the intersection of North park Drive and Cuthbert Blvd.  An overflow lot will be set up in the grass field located next to the Cooper House approxiamately 500 meters to go on the race course.  The easiest way to arrive is come West down North Park Drive as if you were following the race course from start to finish.  The main staging area is all the way down just before the traffic light.  The overflow lot entrance is best entered using the driveway entrance to the parking lot but stay straight along the bike path until clear of the light fixture.  Once clear you will pull out on the grass where directed to park. Tow vehicles will be directed to park where parking can be found, the map indicates parking but we will need to clarify that come Saturday afternoon.  The docks are located behind the building with the launch on the right (upriver side) and the return on the left (downriver side).  There will be people on site to advise where to park.  If you are not planning to be here for Sunday races be sure to park your trailer where you are not blocked to exit.


  The course will be open on Friday 1 PM to 8 PM.  The local traffic pattern will be in use which is:  Upriver towards the start will be in lanes 0, 1, and 2.  Downriver are lanes 4, 5, and 6 leaving lane 3 open as a safety lane.  Please note that the boathouse crews will be launching and returning as well so keep an eye out for additional boats.


Chuck Wagons/Food Trailers

  The team tents will be set up in two locations this year.  The normal tent location WILL BE USED but in a limited capacity that will be posted the week of the event.  The second location is the island behind the Cooper House restaruant, look at team boat trailer map.  The county will have trucks at the curb to assist with loading and unloading of team tent equipment.  If you have specific questions please ask the county personnel.  The ground is marked with no tents and lines PLEASE RESPECT THE MARKINGS so that everyone has space.


The last map is an aerial of the river with all of the locations marked off.  Please be sure to notify your trailer drivers of these changes this year.
