2019 SPRING / SUMMER REGATTA SEASON

 

2019 REGATTA DETAILS

Racing is not mandatory but regattas are fun and are great for team building.

  • Regattas are an additional expense. They are not covered by registration fees.

 

  • NEW FOR 2019! This regatta season, rowers will pre-pay for the regattas they will attend. Your payment, due 15 days before each regatta, is your "rsvp" to let coaching staff know they should include you in regatta entries/ boat lineups.

 

  • Pay particular attention to cut-off dates for making reservations. After the date listed, any rooms that haven’t been booked will be released back into the hotel’s pool.

 

  • Booked a room in a team hotel but no longer able to attend the regatta? BEFORE YOU CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION, please contact HAYLEY HARRIS. Room blocks are tight and someone might still need a room.

 

  • Make sure to read the Regatta Travel Policy and understand LLRC expectations regarding transportation and hotels, chaperoning another rower, junior team travel curfew/socializing policy, alcohol/drugs policy, and travel payment/refund policy.
