Open Ocean Regatta

  • Hosted By: Open Water Rowing Center

We have limited space for trailers, please call our office in advance if you need to park a trailer. Boats may be stored at the OWRC boathouse on Friday, April 15. If you plan to store a boat, please email [email protected] office to confirm time of delivery. Make sure to bring your own slings for holding your boat!

Boat rentals are available on a prepaid, first-come, first-served basis with OWRC Annual Club members having booking priority. OWRC rents boats to rowers who have been cleared to safely row the type of boat that they are renting. Contact [email protected] to reserve a boat.

Parking is available at the boathouse on a first come, first served, basis. The post-race barbecue is a fun get-together for rowers and a great way to kick off the racing season! 

Volunteers will be posted at the Marina entrance to help you unload and give you directions to available parking.


Get to Sausalito via Hwy 101: We are toward the north end of Sausalito, so if you are coming from the north take the first Sausalito turnoff. Even if you are coming from the south it might be easiest to take the north-most turnoff. However you do it, get onto Bridgeway, which is the main road through the town, following the Bay sometimes right next to the water and sometimes a hundred yards away.

Driving South on Bridgeway: When you pass Spring Street (stoplight) you have only a short block until you reach Easterby-Marinship Street (stoplight). Make a sharp turn to the left and go down a little hill and bare right; you are on Liberty Ship Way.

Driving North on Bridgeway: Pass the center of the town, then Dunphy Park on the right, then Napa Street (the waterfront building at the end of Napa is the birthplace of the Whole Earth Catalog). You have a few hundred yards to Marinship-Easterby (stoplight), bear to the right down a little hill, then keep to the right; you are on Liberty Ship Way.
