  • Start Order Report v3 FINAL: Bow numbers have been drawn, and the Start Order Report is now available for download (PDF, 7 pages).
27 Sep
  • Peace and Harmony at Check-In: Get your waivers done now at Regatta Central for a smooth and effortless check-in process at the boathouse. Check-in is 4-6pm on Saturday, and Sunday morning 6am to mid-morning.
  • Back It Down: If you're launching from the docks at the boathouse, remember that you'll want to line up your boat STERN FIRST INTO THE BOATHOUSE DOCKS. This will put your bow pointing upstream in the direction of the start line and you'll be on your way in no time. And for the heavily subscribed events - you know who you are - please launch and tie off on the water.

  • Event 46: We are moving 46 to after the lunch break with a 1:15p start to put an extra 45 minutes between 31 and 46, a popular combination. This will be mentioned at the C&C meeting but will NOT be reflected in the Event Program.

  • Coaches! Cut-off for online line-up changes at Regatta Central is tonight at midnight. Please take care of this if you can so that we have a smooth and expeditious registration process on Saturday and Sunday. The lines will be as long or short as you make them.

More about the TRR

The 2009 TRR as seen from above.  >> More pictures.

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.
