We look forward to seeing you all at this year's Snowflake Regatta!
Video review of the Snowflake Regatta course on the Peconic River in Riverhead, NY
The Coaches and Coxswain meeting is mandatory for all competitors, the only exception is for Masters rowers who are also members of East End Rowing. Bow numbers will be distributed at the mandatory coaches and coxswain meeting, not at registration. This is to ensure that all competitors have representation at the coaches and coxswain meeting prior to racing.
Hot Seating is not permitted at the Snowflake Regatta. East End Rowing will do their best to sequence the races so that the young athletes have as many chances to race as possible, and that clubs and schools will have the best opportunity to get the most races out of their fleet. However requests for hot seating or changes to race sequencing cannot be accomodated.
Races will be run in batches. Each batch will launch together, then race in succession, and dock. The next batch will launch after the completion of the previous batch. This process will be followed until all batches complete.
As anyone who has raced the Snowflake knows, the Peconic River requires careful navigation and narrows significantly at many points. These no passing zones will be communicated in the coaches and coxswain meeting. Expect that the area near the finish will be a no passing zone, as the river narrows significantly at that point.
Payment for all competing boats will be verified at registration. Any boats not paid for by registration will be charged via credit card at registration.
