  • The road construction projects in the Green Bay and De Pere area are scheduled to be completed before October.  However, there is ongoing construction on U.S. Highway 41/441 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.
