How long is the Regatta?

Some rowers may need to be there for both Saturday and Sunday.  Scullers will likely row on Saturday.  These rowers should plan to be there on Friday night. Most larger boat races will be held on Sunday.  Therefore,  many rowers can arrive on Saturday to race on Sunday. Scullers that need to be there on Saturday will be notified as soon as the registration closes, if not before.  Please make sure you register as soon as possible so we can notify  you of the days you will be rowing. Registration closes on September 17.

What is included in the $175 registration fee?

Included in the registration fee will be race registration fees, coaches costs, boat trailering, tent space and some food each day. The cost is $175 per rower assuming that we have at least 25 rowers.  Not included is lodging, rower transportation, and most meals. A team dinner is being planned.

Do Parents need to go?
GBR will not be providing transportation or chaperones.  Every rower will be responsible to get to the event, and every junior rower, regardless of age, will be required to be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other pre-arranged adult.

Where should we stay?

Families can stay in any hotel – we have made  arrangements to provide a central location.  If you choose another hotel we suggest booking in Clifton Park, Saratoga Springs and Albany.

The Hampton Inn Clifton Park:

Our group rate is now active ($129/night with 2 night booking) This can be booked by either calling the hotel below and asking for Great Bay Rowing rate or by the link below. (* Note if you use the link, it may come up as 3 nights and you just need to change it to the check out date of 10/29 and it works fine,   We’ve asked our contact to have this changed so folks will not be confused)


* 9/25 is the cut off to hold the group space, but don’t wait!

*25 rooms are held, if we need more we can have them added based on availability

*Reservations can be made for 2 nights and then folks can cancel one night if needed (one night rate will be up to $139) up to 48 hours in advance without penalty.  As it stands now, we recommend booking for two nights.
