What times can registration packets be picked up on Friday?
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
24:16
other than the s-turn. the course is buoyed with race course buoys every 20 meters… there are bigger buoys every 250

2:00 pm Friday Registration will open.
Cameron Charrette
25:50
Are we aloud to get riggers over the buoy’s if there small enough
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
26:58
you may… but in all cases it would be longer course to put oars over buoys… and the s-turn buoys are too big
Linda’s iPhone
27:03
Do the bouys change color towards the finish
SRA - Katherine
27:09
If arriving before 2 pm and need registration packet email me at Katherine.smith@saratogarowing.com and we’ll try to accomodate
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
27:47
No the buoys are the same color… but there is a big buoy at the 250s. so you will see the last 250 big boy
Linda’s iPhone
28:26
Are they marked with the distance
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
28:55
The big buoys are not marked with distance
Linda’s iPhone
29:21
So we have to count down the big bouys?
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA

When you hear the crowds you are in the last 250 :-)

Is passing permitted under the bridge or before it?
Linda’s iPhone
39:54
Is the bouy line the best line down the course?
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
40:00
There is room for 2 boats under the bridge. it is not advised to pass, but it is possible. The bridge is less than 200 meters into the race.. so you have to be pretty fast to catch someone

Eric Catalano ARION/SRA

There will be marshalls helping you around the s-turn
Grace Sumner

how many minutes before our race time should we start to line up?
Grace Sumner
44:27
Thanks again - love the pictures/graphics and clear instructions.
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
45:24
find your place in line 5-10 minutes before your race… if it is a big event, give yourself some time to maneuver if it is a small event you can spend a bit more time warming up before you find your place. In all cases, Listen to the marshalls
Eric Catalano ARION/SRA
45:39
bring your warm clothes all the way up to the start
