Club Registration with FSRA

For our insurance to cover you, each club entering must be a current member of FSRA.  Unaffiliated individuals must be individual members of USRowing.  Please make sure your membership is current.

EVENTS  MAY  CLOSE  EARLY:

It is anticipated that some events may see significant entries, usually in DOUBLES.

In order to complete racing at a reasonable time, we will probably have to limit the number of flights per event to three, which would mean a maximum of  TWENTY ONE entries per event for the actual races.  If some events are under-subscribed, we may be able to add additional flights.

We reserve the right to close some events before the deadline if necessary.
 

RACE COURSE

Events will be  1500 m. start AT THE END CLOSE TO MRC AND FINISH AT RUSTIN PELIKAN

There will be 6 lanes and the course will be buoyed every 100 meters

    JV RULE

Teams must enter their fastest crews on the Varsity level, 2nd fastest crews on the JV level .This applies to the same sized boats (a JV8 requires a V8 entry just as a JV4 requires a V4 entry).
