COACHES and ATHLETES
Due to the move to the Cooper River and expected weather, we are working on a revision to the schedule.
Please follow @StotesRegatta Twitter feed and RegattaCentral bulletins for latest updates, plus check back here frequently.
Thursday, May 17
Practice on the river from the Three Angels and City Dock areas will be from 1:00PM until 5:30 PM. No crew will be allowed to launch after 5:30 pm, and 100% of boats will be escorted off the course after sunset.
The traffic pattern for Thursday practice is as follows:
Crews launching from the Three Angels Athletes Village must launch with bows pointing DOWNRIVER toward the stone Railroad bridge, proceed downriver to the marshal position, turn to the far starboard shore and proceed upriver along the WEST side to the Strawberry Mansion Bridge. Moving upriver to the 1500 meter race start area is subject to the marshal at the bridge, depending on the course installation work crew at the Temple Boathouse. Turning downriver on the lanes of the 1500 meter race course, crews may only row under the arch of the Strawberry Mansion Bridge marked lanes 4-5- 6, to the finish line area and beyond the Columbia RR Bridge to return to the Three Angels dock area.
Crews launching from the City docks adjacent Gillin/St. Joseph’s Boathouse will launch with the bows facing DOWNRIVER toward the finish line and move downriver in lanes 1 – 2 – 3 to 100 meters below the Three Angels docks to the marshal, then turn to starboard to the west shore and proceed upriver to above the 1500 meter start line. Returning to the docks by rowing down the course in lanes 4 – 5 and crossing to the City/St. Joseph docks.
Crews launching from Boathouse Row docks will observe the normal traffic pattern of moving up the west side of the river, being cautious above the Girard Avenue bridges for visiting crews turning to the west shore from the Three Angels Area. Above this area, the normal traffic pattern will be in effect.
