What to bring- we are fortunate to be on a beautiful 5 acres, but have limited shade and shelter. If you have access to a tent and folding chairs it would be worthwhile bringing them along. There will be a water station available for refilling water bottles
BBQ- a BBQ lunch is included in your registration and follows the Head Race- pork steak, smokies and vegetarian burgers, and salads. Family and friends are very welcome to join in for a contribution of $5.
Sprint Schedule- we are looking forward to some fun racing in the 500m sprints. Crews don't need to register for these with Regatta Central, we will be creating a draw beforehand though. The events will be every 15 minutes and it is up to athletes and coaches to ensure that crews are at the start on time, races will not be delayed. This is designed to give everyone practice in preparing for successful racing in the future by being aware of the need to be efficient and timely in launching. The schedule is attached and coaches are welcome to send entries in before the event or leave them at the information table prior to the coaches meeting.
