Time trials

·  All time trials will be 1900 meters and will use lanes 4 and 5. Makes for better approach to start with limited room above 2000 m start line

·  Coaches and coxswains meeting at 7:30 am Friday to review rules at the regatta HQ tent

·  Bow numbers can be picked up between 7 and 9 am Friday at regatta HQ tent near launch docks and downstream of St. Joe's boathouse

Weigh-ins will be held from 1:00 to 2:00 pm Friday, 9:00 to 4:00 pm Saturday and 6:30 to noon Sunday at the regatta HQ tent downstream of St. Joe’s boathouse. Competitors must weigh in each day they compete. Only one weigh-in per day is required. Coxswains do not weigh in. All members of a crew must weigh-in together. Photo ID’s are required.

Bring a reusable water bottle!! There are two water fountains available along the course; one near the launch dock & the other near the grandstands. We will also have large water dispensers at the Regatta HQ tent, located near the return dock and St Joe’s Boathouse.
