The regatta is sponsored by RowBOC, the Brattleboro Outing Club’s rowing program. There are three entrance categories: men’s, women’s, and mixed. All ages and levels of rowers are welcome to enter this race with pairs boats. Click for registration forms: PairsRegistration.
Boats launch from the RowBOC boathouse on the West River on Spring Tree Road map. The race course is just under a four-mile round trip on the Connecticut River. The start line is near the Hinsdale/Brattleboro Bridge. Competitors then race upstream, turn left around the Chesterfield Bridge stake marker, and return downstream to the start area.
Many thanks to Graeme King of King Boat Works for launching this Regatta.
