The regatta will welcome more than 6750 competitors from across the US and six countries. Racing each day is from 8:00AM — 4:30PM (Saturday) and 3:45PM (Sunday). Once again we have lots of activities at the Three Angels Statues in our Festival Tent…awards ceremonies, food, DJ, and outstanding vendors. We hope you and your members will take advantage of everything the regatta offers…on and off the water. This year we will also have vendors at the Finish Line (above the Viking Statue). In addition to vendors, we will again have our announcing team and Philadelphia Food Trucks. It should be great fun!

A highlight of this year’s regatta is the Gold Cup Challenge race and the Corporate Challenge, on Saturday, October 25 beginning at 11:00AM. The course will be 750 meters and will begin above the Three Angels Statues and end above Girard Avenue Bridge. You do not want to miss these events…with the best four male and four female singles scullers in the world!! The awards ceremonies for those races will be at 1:00PM in the Festival Tent. Invited champions are: Chantal Achterberg (Netherlands), Kim Crow (Australia) Miroslave Knapkova (Czech Republic) and Gevvie Stone (United States) and Kjetil Borch (Norway), Mahe Drysdale (New Zealand), Yohann Rigogne (United States…Vesper!) and Ondrej Synek (Czech Republic). It’s very rare that we have such star power on the Schuylkill River at one time!!!

As always, the traffic pattern will change at noon on Friday, October 24. Please make sure your members are familiar with the regatta traffic rules…all boats traveling up river from Boathouse Row and the Launch Area at the Three Angels Statues will travel on the Kelly Drive side and all Boats traveling down river must follow the marked head-race course, keeping the continuous buoy line on their port side. We will have many out of town boats and hope we all follow these changes for a weekend of great racing on the Schuylkill River.

Practice Schedule:
Friday, October 24: 12:00noon — 5:30PM
Saturday, October 25: end of racing — 5:30PM
