  • 2022 Registered Regatta

Entry:   Entries and fees must be received by Friday, March 11th, 2022 to be considered.  Our goal is to have the final schedule on the web page (www.greenlakecrew.org) by March 14th.   

Entry Fees:

8+:       $144

4+/4x:  $72

2x:        $36

Entries will not be accepted without payment; entries received after March 11th be assessed a late fee and are subject to space availability.  Entry fees will only be refunded if the event is cancelled due to insufficient entries or if your entry is waitlisted.

Racecourse:  We will be putting in an 8-lane buoyed racecourse for the Spring Regatta.  Our goal is to offer one of the finest organized regattas your crew will attend this year, keeping safety and fair racing as our top objectives.

Entries: First entries made in an event by the entry deadline will be prioritized.  Second entries or lower registered by the entry deadline will be accepted while space permits.  A random selection will be used to fill any vacancies for a second (or lower) entry.  Events with fewer than three entries, from different clubs, will be removed from the schedule unless it is possible to combine the event with another.

Scratch Fee:  A scratch fee of $45.00 will be assessed for any scratches made after 4:00pm on Tuesday, March 16th, 2022.  Fees assessed for scratches made prior to the regatta must be paid by the conclusion of the coaches’ and coxswains’ meeting.  Any scratches or non-launched entries occurring during the regatta will also be assessed the fee. Extenuating circumstances occurring at the regatta such as illness, injury, emergency, etc. will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  The goal of the scratch fee policy is to reduce the number of scratches and no-shows at the starting line, and to allow sufficient notice of available racing opportunities to clubs on the waiting list.

Coaches & Coxswains Meeting: The online coaches and coxswains meeting is scheduled for Friday, March 18th at 7:00pm. A meeting link will be made available to all teams one week prior to the event.  Every team MUST have a representative in attendance, and it is recommended that all coxswains attend.  This will be your last chance to make any changes in the race schedule prior to racing (i.e., Master's ages, scratches, etc.).  Regatta rules and racing procedures will be reviewed.  A clinic for new coxswains may follow if time allows.

Insurance:  This is a USRowing registered and insured regatta.  Regatta insurance is included in the entry fee.

USRowing Waivers and SafeSport: Clubs must confirm for all participants that USRowing online waivers and SafeSport training (for adult participants) are on record prior to racing.  All individuals must be members of a USRowing member organization.  Crews with

Parking:  Parking on site has been a problem in the past and we ask you to PLEASE inform your participants to park legally.  The Seattle Police are diligent about ticketing and towing illegally parked vehicles. Expect to park by the tennis courts and/or soccer and baseball fields at Lower Woodland.  Please do not plan on parking along West Green Lake Way; it is a no parking zone.

Permits - Propane / Tents:  The Seattle Fire Department has requested that we obtain a LPG Assembly Occupation permit for all the crews that will be using propane.  Green Lake will apply for this permit for the regatta.  If you use any propane, you will be required to have an approved fire extinguisher. Acceptable fire extinguishers require a classification of 2A 40BC or greater.  For crews wanting to put up tents larger than 200 square feet or shelters larger than 400 square feet, you will be required to apply for a permit with the Seattle Fire Department www.seattle.gov/fire . The permit that you will need is the 3201 Tent or Air-Supported Structure.

Awards:  Medals will be awarded to first, second, and third place crews.

Equipment:  Please make arrangements to bring your own equipment.  Bow numbers are required and not provided.  We will be having overnight security at Green Lake, but equipment will be left at your own risk. Parking for trailers will be available in the parking lots west of the boathouse.  We will be closing parking lots early Friday morning.
