- Schuylkill River
- Philadelphia, PA (USA)
- Hosted By: Schuylkill Navy of Philadelphia
- 2016 Registered Regatta
We've tried to make a schedule that works for as many of our various "constituents" as possible. Masters sweep races are on Saturday, as in past years. Masters sculling races are on Sunday, as in past years. Juniors races are on Sunday & Monday. Other races are spread over the 3 days. A preliminary schedule is posted at http://www.boathouserow.org/rega08/idroc.html#schedule.
Kelly Drive will be closed on Friday and trailers won't be able to arrive until Saturday morning, so the regatta will start at 11 am Saturday. The regatta will conclude around 1:30 pm Monday so people have time to travel home and be back to work Tuesday morning. To do this, we've dropped - for this year only - the dash races, mixed doubles and masters mixed quads, parent/child races and octuple sculls. They will definitely be back in 2009.
