Who attends each regatta?

Atomic rowers are expected to attend all regatta.  Select regattas are by coach invitation and/or qualification.  Final crew selection for Select regatta should be announced no later than three weeks before regatta date.

Transportation

Transportation to regattas within 150 miles one-way - parents will make their own arrangements to transport athletes.

Transportation to regatta more than 150 miles on-way, will be by chartered motorcoach. ORRA will contract for the coach and invoice each member for his/her share of the cost as part of the travel fees.

 

Hotels

A “block” of rooms will be reserved for each regatta.  The parents Travel Committee assign athletes to rooms based on coaches recommendations, and ORRA will invoice each member for his/her share of the costs.

Note: room blocks are for athletes only.  If a you want to travel with your child, you will need to contact the hotel and make a separate reservation.  Do this early--these rooms fill up quickly.

 

Money for expenses on the road

The Boosters will feed the athletes at each regatta.  If you are not traveling with your child you should give him/her approximately $20 per day spending money for stops for lunch or other small incidentals.
