RIVER RAT REGATTA RESCHEDULED TO SATURDAY, AUGUST 17TH!
Due to the heavy rains and flooding last night, we are rescheduling the River Rat Regatta to Saturday, August 17th.
If you missed this event last year, you don't want to miss it this year! The River Rat Regatta is our 2-man boat race on the Neuse River, with boats (and paddles) made using only cardboard, glue and duct tape! (Oh My!!) The race starts at the Front Street Boat Ramp, and continues to the finish line at the Highway 70 bridge. Life jackets are required for everyone! Helmets required for participants under 17, but recommended for all.
For detailed Rules and Requirements, pick up a packet at SRAC, or check out more information under River Rat Regatta Program Registration.
Register now by going to upper left green box - Program Registration! Check-in will go a little quicker for you if you register and pay ahead of time!
Registration Fees (per boat) - $25
On-line registration ends at 3pm Friday afternoon, 8/16. If spots still open, you may register Race Day at Town Commons.
On Race Day - Check-in begins at 2:30pm. At check-in, ALL racers must sign Waivers at that time (Racers 17 and under will require parent or guardian signatures) and have their boats in the "Yacht Club" by 3:30pm for the "Captains" Meeting and judging.
Race begins at 4pm. Following the race, stick around to enjoy food trucks and a band at 7pm!
If you don't want to build and race a boat, come out and enjoy the fun!!!
