CSSRA Friday + End of Season Dinner

You’ve finally made it! We’ve arrived at our last regatta of the season. The coaches are incredibly proud of all the hard work you’ve put in so far. Let’s finish the season on a high note.


You NEED to have ID for this regatta. Valid ID includes your current student card, or government issued photo ID. Please triple check that you have your ID in hand as you leave you house each morning.


Tomorrow is going to be HOT. Please bring a dry outfit for after each race you have. For your racing uniform, you MUST be matching your crew. All athletes should have a unisuit, and please decide with your crew whether you are wearing a shirt underneath.

Food, Sunscreen, & Water

However much food you need, double it. Same with water. It is incredibly important that you fuel properly before and after racing. On a similar note, sunscreen needs to be applied multiple times a day. This is a three day regatta, and you do not want to have a poor race Saturday because you didn’t apply proper sunscreen on Friday.

Arrival & Departure Times

Please consult the previous post for arrival times. We’ve asked that athletes arrive between 90-120 minutes before their race time. Anyone weighing in (coxies, lightweights) must be at the course by 8:30am at the latest. When you are done racing and your boat taken care of, we ask that you please leave the course and go rest.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out!!

Stay speedy,
