Derby Sweeps and Sculls

  • Hosted By: New Haven Rowing Club
  • 2020 Registered Regatta
  • Cancelled


COURSE: The course will be 1000 meters long and straight, running upstream (north) and finishing at the southern end of Indian Well Park.  There will be a line of buoys at each the side of the course and another line of buoys between lanes 2 and 3.  Lane 1 is nearest the Shelton (Park-side) shore.  If we need lane 5, it will be outside the outermost line of buoys.  We will be using floating starts instead of stake boats.


VENUE: All contestants will launch from the Indian Well State Park off route 110 in Shelton, CT.  Crews will wade their boats into the water from the park’s large, sandy beach.  The water will be warm at this time of year.  Sanitary facilities, but no showers, are available at the park.  Concessions, including food and T-shirts, will be operated by volunteer groups and/or vendors.  Camping, alcohol and dogs are not allowed in the park.  Trailers may be parked at the park overnight, but security is not provided.

Trailer Parking:  NRHC volunteers will be on site at Indian Well State Park from 3-5 p.m. the day before the regatta. If you arrive after 5:00 p.m., please park in the area marked off with orange traffic cones.  The park closes for the night at approximately 7:30 p.m.
