The 2021 regatta is going virtual!

Lots of racing. Lots of fun.

We are delighted to announce that this year’s regatta will be virtual with live team racing on ergs as well as on the water racing for boats that are eligible.

Registration opens January 29 on Regatta Central.

 

What races will be on the erg?
All of the usual races for youth, collegiate, masters, and para will race on ergs as team boats, 8s and 4s, with the exception of the Copley Cup and the Jessop-Whittier Cup which will be on the water, on their home course, by invitation only.

What is on the water?
All the same events will have an option to submit a score that has been raced on a crew’s home water as 2 x 1500m for collegiate and 2 x 1250m for all other events, in opposite directions.  E.g., a team rows their first piece downstream, then turns around and within five minutes begins their second piece upstream.

On the water racing will be done via GPS from March 19-26, 2021.

How will races be run?
Ergometer racing will be held on Saturday March 27, 2021 and managed by Time Team based on the schedule that will be posted on Regatta Central.

How do we win a trophy?
Your team wins their erg race over 2000m. The exceptions are the Copley Cup and Jessop-Whittier which will only be run on the water, on their home course, by invitation only.

Do we get anything else if we win?
Yes, you will be the #1 seed at the 2022 regatta.

Do all of our athletes need to be in the same place to participate in the ergometer team racing?
No, they do not. They simply need an internet connection, a Concept2 ergometer, PM3, PM4 or PM5, a computer, and a cable from the erg to the computer. No dynamic ergs or sliders.

Can we watch the racing?
Yes! The event will be professionally broadcast with announcers, interviews, commercials from our vendors and giveaways for the audience. Races will be live streamed across our social media channels: YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Where do we find all of the other details?
See Rules of Racing below and Regatta Central.
