Our thanks to all the competitors, coaches, alumni, vendors, volunteers, and families & friends that made the TRR a success. The rain held off - and given the rash of cancelled regattas this weekend elsewhere in the region, we were thrilled to have
overcast skies, good temperatures and very decent water level in the river.
We look forward to seeing you again next year - mark your
calendar for TRR 2012 on Sunday September 30th, 2012. Until that day, we will again be looking at further
ways to improve the event - so please do send your
feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org

More about the TRR
The Textile River Regatta is an extremely popular 6k head race held
on the Merrimack River in the fall. The event is organized by the
Merrimack River Rowing Association (MRRA) in coordination with the
UMass-Lowell and Lowell High School Rowing programs.
A full range of sculling and sweeps events are included, with
competition provided by large entries from many local and regional
clubs and colleges. The event occurs a few weeks prior to the Head
of the Charles and hence provides athletes with ideal competitive
training on a great course with a convenient location.
