REGATTA DETAILS

Norcal’s race entries can be found on Regatta Central: https://www.regattacentral.com/regatta/entries/?job_id=6413&org_id=1172 (Note to parents: Pay no attention to the initial line-ups. The athlete names are just placeholders.)

Regatta Packet: https://www.regattacentral.com/cms/uploads/redwood_scullers_pacjc/files/HOTL2019_RegattaPacket.pdf (There are no coxswain weigh-ins. Lightweights may weigh in from 7a.m – 11 am . Crews must weigh-in together. )

EVENT NOTES

  • Binoculars can be helpful.
  • There is a vendor area. Most vendors take credit cards, but if you’d like to do some shopping, bring a little cash. There will be an official regatta wear stand, selling commemorative “2019 Head of the Lagoon” shirts and sweatshirts.
  • There is no standing allowed on top of any of the bridges. The bike/pedestrian lane on the bridges is in the center, so standing to get a view would put you in the traffic lane which would then get you a ticket from FCPD. Standing is allowed off to the sides of the bridges or under the arches. There is no spectator viewing at the start or finish line as these locations are the backyards of Foster City residents. There is an overlook point to the finish line located near 1233 Hillsdale Avenue. There is no parking or stopping on this overlook, but you can walk or bike from the main Regatta HQ location.
