We turned over the venue and the race course to a friend and photographer Mike Franey, and his photos are spectacular! He shot over
1800 photos, and the best 500 are posted in his Lightroom folder on the web.
Visit Mike Franey's Lightroom to see the results for yourself.
If you'd like the high-resolution version of any photos suitable for printing in large format, Mike is asking $10 per image and 5 for $40 to help support his hobby. Click the "info" icon
on any image and send him the image name and $10 via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thanks for playing at the 39th Annual Textile River Regatta. We had great weather and saw great racing, only made possible by the sportsmanship and hard work of all the crews, families and volunteers on many levels. We're very grateful for your support and wish you the best success in this racing season.
Directions to the Venue: For the venue location and tips on getting to and from the regatta, visit the DIRECTIONS page.
Course Awareness: Visit the MAPS page for high resolution maps of the course and venue. Coxswains should pay special attention to the Start Area Detail and Notes. Bus and trailer drivers, and parents and friends with motor vehicles should review the Land Traffic Patterns to acquaint yourselves with parking options and basic traffic guidelines.
Parking questions? See the PARKING page. Basic guideline: If it feels illegal, it probably is. Trailers have slightly tougher requirements... See the TRAILERS page.

TEAM TENT RESERVATIONS
Reserve Team Tent space so that you have a known rally point for your team and boosters. Choose from one of three central locations and we'll stake out 10'x10' or 10'x20' space (you provide the tent). Reservations are $75/space for the entire weekend.
TRR Hotel Rates are NOT YET POSTED. Check back soon.
If you're planning to stay overnight, it's worth your while to visit the Hotels and Directions page on this site where our partners at the Greater Merrimack Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau have compiled a list of area hotels that are offering special rates for visitors to the regattas.
