Welcome to TRR'19

Game on! We look forward to seeing all y'all competitors, coaches, friends and families of the TRR coming up soon! Too soon for those of us on the supply side of all-things Textile, but we're getting there. Stay tuned to this space for important Updates, and keep an eye out for our needs that you might be able to fulfill in exchange for entry comps. For now, everything is normal just like a cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

  • Registration is OPEN at Regatta Central and closes promptly at 11:59p on Sunday, September 29th. Be aware that this year's regatta is capped at 550 total entries and certain Junior events also have per-club caps! We are also frowning upon late registrations this year if we are close to cap limits!
  • We're not looking for launches or labor yet. Keep an eye on this space for when this changes. If you're bringing a launch for a Saturday afternoon practice with your crew, let us know. Be aware, we may need launches - but what we will likely need is a launch that comes with a driver.
  • "Hey Google, Play Textile River Regatta Radio on Tune-In" seems to work. Can someone try this on Alexa and let us know if that works too? Textile Radio will be LIVE on race day, so the tech-infused crews among us are encouraged to bring a mobile device and a Bluetooth boombox to repeat our signal along the venue and at your camp site. It's not guaranteed to be live for the C&C meeting so we still encourage you to attend that in person (7:10am at the Boathouse).

Beautiful Regatta 2018 Photos!

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 m_franeyjr@yahoo.com. Update for 2019 - Mike will be back with us this year, contact him for your official Textile 2019 Team Photos if that's a thing.

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.

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.

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.

Visit the Team Tent Reservation page to secure your space.


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.


Visit the Rules and Regulations page for our best guess on the myriad rules and classifications governing this nutty sport. If you need clarification, write to us and we'll take it up with the appropriate authority.
