Bridge to Bridge Regatta

The South End’s longest continually running regatta since 1978.  The course, as the name implies, is a race from Aquatic Park to the Golden Gate Bridge, then to the Bay Bridge, and back to Aquatic Park.  Epic and classic. Registration will be posted on RegattaCentral.

Tim Huebner Challenge

North Tahoe Regatta

For lodging, register at the Ferrari’s Crown Resort or calling 530-546-3388. For those who haven’t been before, it’s the central location of the regatta–its beach serves as both the starting point of the race and the location of the post-regatta brunch. A block of rooms has been reserved for rowers, but space is limited. So book NOW!

The Pre-Regatta Skipper’s reception will be held at the Tahoe Yacht Club in Tahoe City on Friday night, June 8th at 6:00p.m. Pre-registration is a must, and the cost (which covers both the dinner and the regatta’s informational meeting) will be $15. Registration and payment for this event can also be done on Regatta Central.

We are looking forward to a stellar occasion this year, and to seeing each and every one of you!

Tom & Jerry Three Buoy Regatta

traditional rowing boats on San Francisco Bay

The Tom & Jerry Three Buoy Regatta-  This is a 5 mile, open water (with the potential for some rough water) regatta.  The regatta is named for the two South Enders, who came up with this course in 2012 to test one’s navigational and rowing skills.  The “3 buoys” mark shipping channels around Little Alcatraz, Alcatraz and Blossom Rock.  To register for this regatta, please sign in to RegattaCentral. 



Open Ocean Regatta

Open Water Rowing Center is the host for the annual Open Ocean Regatta, held every spring for over 40 years. There are three courses of varying length and water conditions for open water scullers in shells and traditional boats, both singles, doubles and quads.

The most challenging course is the 7.6 nm Diablo Course (14 km). From the start near downtown Sausalito, this course heads out under the Golden Gate Bridge to Diablo Point, and then back under the bridge to Belvedere’s Peninsula Point before finishing back at the Sausalito waterfront. Rowers from many clubs in the west join OWRC regulars in the challenge of this spectacular course with unpredictable conditions.

The race is held on a Sunday in April, and special race-prep clinics are offered in the weeks leading to the regatta. OWRC members are critical support for the regatta, volunteering in roles ranging from parking control/shell unloading to race officials and BBQ organizers. There’s a job for everybody!

The post-race barbecue is a fun get-together for area open-water enthusiasts.
