A regatta is a full day of races held rain or shine (as long as there is no lightning). Races typically begin around 8:30 am and go until 4:30 pm.
Please arrive at the regatta site early to help unload the PRCC boat trailer and stake out a good vantage point with the other Rouge members to watch the races. At least 60 minutes before your first race, check in with your coach. Most regattas will offer a BBQ and a snack bar (for fundraising) where you can buy a lunch. Since these lunches are usually geared towards the spectators, you should pack a healthy lunch and snacks that are quick to eat, and easily digested (e.g., fruit, granola bars, bagels and lots of water).
