Regattas

Save the date!  We’re excited to get as many rowers as possible to join us in the following two spring regattas!

Once the spring season kicks off, we’ll be reaching out to adult rowers to identify interest and availability in the following spring regattas.  EBR coaches will try to ensure anyone interested in racing has the opportunity to race.

06/02/2018 – Mayors Cup in Providence

06/24/2018 – Festival Regatta, Lowell, MA

In order to race:  

  1. Each rower must have a US Rowing Membership.

            a. You can obtain your individual membership from US Rowing here.

            b. Use the EBR Membership Code: EDHQS

            c. Be sure to specify EBR in Rhode Island.  There is a club of the same name in California.  

     2. Each rower will need an EBR racing uniform.  Adult rowers will wear top and bottom separates.   To save us all some cash, we’ll be placing a uniform order as a group after Spring signups.  You can see all of the EBR swag here.
