Questions about this regatta should be directed to Bernhard Stomporowski:  510-541-3747 or stomporowski@gmx.net

Events:  M2-, LM2-, M1X, W1X, LM1X, LW1X

Saturday: 6k erg test on Concept 2 (Fixed) Please note:  Everyone is expected to participate in the 6k erg test in order to compete Sunday on the water. Times from the 6k will determine the start order for Sunday's racing. Lightweight athletes will only be required to weigh in one time during the event, before the erg test on Saturday. No weigh-in will be required for Sunday's racing.

Sunday: The course is 4023m long (See map below)

The course is divided in 3 parts. 

  • Start to 2nd Pole Set (about 1.8k)
  • 2nd Pole Set to 1st Pole Set (about 1.2k)
  • 1st Pole Set to Finish (about 1.1k)

***Important for all rowers: You have to row thru the 2nd and 1st Pole Set. These are markers for boats and every Pole is either Red or Green. If you are NOT rowing thru the Pole Set you will be disqualified.

*** At the moment we will have the (Rowing) Speed Order we will have LOW TIDE. 1st start is about 5min before low tide (9.09am) and last start about 5min after the peak point of low tide. This insures that during the regatta will be nearly no current in either direction.

For your reference, these are the best-times on this course:

M1x – Derek Johnson – 14:36.92 min

M1x L  – Dan Lebl – 15:32.79 min
