The Regatta

(Thursday, July 13- Saturday, July 15)


The Summer Race Like No Other-You Don't Want To Miss It!

The race guarantees side-by-side racing experience in all boat categories. We challenge everyone to race in a 1x as well as get into many larger boat categories and the race schedule is set up to do so. We invite college coaches to watch rowing up close in launches during scheduled times around the racing to benefit all involved. The unique race schedule also allows for development opportunities to continue throughout the days of racing. The race also offers the SUMMER COMPOSITE CLASH - a fun new opportunity to test racing skills while opening up relationships between individuals and programs.

This Summer

We Provide the Boats: Any team or anyone that wants to come and not worry about the time, wear on equipment and the cost, can attend and we will provide boats for you to race in! No need to spend money or logistics of trailering! You are welcome to bring and use your own equipment if you so choose.

No Time Trials: We believe more is learned in head to head racing. We will use 10 lanes and get everyone racing experience.

Entry Fees: They are much more affordable than other summer racing opportunities.

Housing Ease: Sarasota is set up for visitors and we have plenty of affordable options to choose from with Pellucid Travel.

Recruiting: Athletes will receive better access to college coaches (and vice versa) than any other race. The race schedule has planned times outside of racing for college coaches to ride along and watch rowers in action and follow up with meetings to discuss great fits for both college and high school rower or coxswain.

Schedule: The schedule will allow coaches to race their rowers in as many categories as they choose. Sweep, scull, small boats, big boats, coastal boats all are spaced in a way to allow everyone to race as much as they choose to.
