2020 Novice Regatta (Novice HS & All MS)

  • 02/01/2020

  • Only middle school rowers need to register in advance for regattas so we have an accurate head count.

Novice Regatta is a great regatta for our Novice and Middle School rowers to gain experience in Spring Sprints Racing. This is a in-town regatta and rowers may drive themselves.  While this is not a required regatta for the Varsity HS team, we encourage you to attend and cheer on our Novice and MS rowers.
