SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga Rowing Association is putting on its’ annual season-opening regatta on Saturday, Sept. 30 beginning at 8:00 a.m. This 2-mile race is held on Fish Creek in Saratoga Springs. To the right is the schedule of the one-day event. Visit www.saratogarowing.com for more information.
“We look forward to this regatta each fall as it serves two major purposes; it gives our new and younger athletes race prep before larger regattas later this season and it allows us to work through the many logistics that must be well coordinated to off the significantly larger Head of the Fish regatta next month,” said Chris Chase, Regatta Director.
“It will take over 225 people and 3,200 volunteer hours to run the three days of regattas this fall. That’s in addition to all the work put in by our dedicated coaches and staff. Starting off with a smaller regatta really does help us get those systems up and running once again,” Katherine Smith, Director of Development and Volunteer Coordinator stated.
