Waivers- Please make sure that your rowers have completed thier waivers, many times there is a snafu due to differant spellings of names.We cross referance USRowing names with Regatta Central , so they have to match.
We had originally listed that the races would be on an 6 minute start, we have changed that to 8 minutes. This gives us some wiggle room. The current is very fast yet , and starts may take a little longer to line up. We would rather over estimate the time needed, and get the teams all on thier way home (with thier medals!)earlier than planned, rather than later.
As always- these regattas are run by volunteers, please if you see a need , and you have the time to help out, we would greatly appreciate it.
We are excited to welcome you to the water that was the home of the 2014 Masters Nationals. If you havent' heard, we have also been chosen for the 2019 Masters Nationals, in August.
