Overpeck Summer Sprints

  • Hosted By: Bergen County Rowing Academy

This regatta is intended as a late summer season regatta for all ages.

Composite teams are permitted.

Coxswains do not need to weigh in.

Athletes may participate in as many events as they desire as long as they are able to fit in the races according to the event schedule without delaying races. We will not change the order of event to accommodate hotseating.

Race Distance (Juniors & Open):  2000 m    

Race Distance (Middle School, Novices & Masters):  1000 m

Race Distance (Dash Events): 500 m

Overpeck Lake features a 4-Lane-2000 m-Course, a 7-Lane-1000 m-Course, and a 7-Lane-500 m-Dash-Course.

For all events each flight is a Final with a gold medal awarded to the winner.

Midde School events are open to rowers who are U15 as of July 30 (Regatta Day), or who have graduated from 8th grade in 2022.

Junior events with more than 4 entries will be divided by U19 and U17 events. A Junior is a rower as defined by USRowing 4-104.1 Classication by Age: "A Youth is a Competitor who in the current calendar year does not attain the age of 19, or who is and has been continously enrolled in a secondary school as a full-time student seeking a diploma.  A Competitor thus ceases to be a Youth after December 31 of the year of his or her 18th birthday, or of the year in which he or she completes the 12th grade of secondary school, having been a full-time student, which- ever is later.

Junior Novice events are open to rowers who have never competed in any rowing event before January 1, 2022.

Masters Novice events are open to rowers who have never competed in any rowing event before January 1, 2022.

Masters Rec Single events require the use of a Recreational Single such as a Maas, another wider boat, or singles with pontoons.

The Mixed Adaptive Double event (Event 66) requires one cognitively disabled rower and a neiro typical rower in the double. The gender can be mixed but is not required.

Dash Events are open to rowers of any age, weight, or level of experience. If you have more than one entry (especially in the singles) please rank them by experience level (A = top experience level) so we can seed the heat more fairly.

Junior Lightweight categories:  Women = 130 lbs. / Men = 150 lbs.

The Mixed Open Octuple should have four men and four women rowers with the coxswain of either sex.
