As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Long Beach Rowing Association Board of Directors has decided to cancel the West Coast Masters Championship Regatta that was to be held this July. We made this decision to ensure the health and safety of all athletes, coaches, volunteers, spectators, and the general public. This decision was not made lightly, but timing is crucial with too many unknowns on the horizon.
Because of so many canceled regattas in 2020, we look forward to hosting the Christmas Regatta on December 5 and 6 – YES! Two full days of rowing to offer more racing.
We look forward to getting back to our workouts and the camaraderie of our clubs and teams. We hope you stay healthy and can join us in December.
Long Beach Rowing Association
Board of Directors
The Beach Sprints is now live on RegattaCentral. Registration will close at midnight on Thursday, January 23rd. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the 25th!
This coming Sunday, December 15th, will be the second Bay Series of the season; running from the end of the stadium, around the island to just before the 2nd Street bridge. If you want to race, be sure to be here by 6:30 AM to get your form in. If you want to watch, the race goes off at 7:30 and breakfast/socializing starts once boats are off the water, shortly after 8:00.
Congratulations to our new Board of Directors! We look forward to another wonderful year of rowing with our new Board members.
