Coming Up: Husky Open Regatta, April 6

Cost: $30


Payment may be made online until midnight, Thursday, April 4.  Thereafter payment must be made in the office.

What it is:

The Husky Open Regatta is a 2000m sprint race held through the Montlake Cut next to the University of Washington.  This regatta is hosted and run by the UW Coaching staff.  It is also a dual meet between the UW and Brown University men.

Where it is:

Racing will be held out of the Conibear Shellhouse at the University of Washington, near the IMA and basketball arena.  Parking will be in the large E1 lot north of the athletic facilities.  They may charge for parking in the E1 lot, so come with $10 if you plan on parking.  You can always drop off athletes without paying for parking.

Other Stuff:

Viewing is best along the Montlake Cut where crews will be racing by just a few feet away.  Also, many people will view from the Montlake Bridge.  BE VERY CAREFUL if viewing on the bridge as the bridge will be open to traffic and spectators have gotten hurt trying to cross the bridge in order to see the finish of a race.  Food will not be served at this event so athletes will need to plan accordingly.
