RACING at REGATTAS
CCRA Masters aims to compete in several local and regional regattas throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons. Races and events will be selected by the head coach based on the competitive potential of the crew and the attitude, attendance, and performance of the individuals throughout the season. Masters opting to race must review and agree to the regatta registration procedures and policies of the club.
Regatta schedule can be found on the Events and Races Calendar page.
Please join us April 29 for CCRA’s First Ice Cutter Masters Regatta. We hope this will grow to be a regatta on Masters schedules across the region!
