And for next year……Covered Bridge Regatta 2015

In order to accommodate more racing, we are going to try something different next year.

The collegiate CBR will be held on Saturday April 11th, 2015.

The masters and juniors CBR will be held on Saturday and Sunday April 18th and 19th, 2015.

We hope this will allow us to offer more events and allow full participation in the events we do offer. If your club has a particular event you would like to see added in 2015, please email (now, while you are thinking about it) Include CBR15 in the subject.
