Chuck Wagons and use of Grills

Chuck wagons and spectators will use the north lot, #2

Chuck wagons may have access to the boardwalk to unload beginning at 7 am. We ask all vehicles be removed by 7:45 am. Parking is available in the north lot.

Vehicles can return for pick up once racing is complete.

·      Crazy Cakes Cupcake Truck will have an assortment of homemade cupcakes and coffee.

·      Luv Michael granola. Nut free, organic, locally sourced granola.

·      M. E. Keyser/Oars jewelry will be on site for custom jewelry orders.

·      Row for Autism gear available for purchase

Course for Sunday, April 15 2018 due to the wind conditions. 

  • Because we race on the Eastern side of the harbor, crews will launch and go up to the start staying on the west side of the course.
  • We advise to launch and go straight to the start, limit your time on the water due to the possible windy conditions.
  • After passing the finish row back to the beach and return to the trailer area.
