Lowell Invitational Regatta this Saturday

Lowell Invitational Regatta


We will be traveling up to Lowell this weekend to race in the Lowell Invitational Regatta.  The kids will be traveling up in a bus as a team.  Having parents come to cheer and support the kids is just as important as the team bonding together on the bus.  We have shied away from the team traveling on the bus because we found that it brought you, the parents up to watch.  I know it is a long day but the board of directors and the coaches truly know that the kids and the coaching staff greatly appreciate having you at the races... in addition to your cheers and annoying cow bell ringing, you take care of thing that the coaching staff really do not have time too do, i.e. food/cooking, tent setup/break down.  There isn't anything better than having a great support crew.


·         The weather may or may not be the greatest so please have your child pack extra clothes to wear.

·         Have your child at the Exit 6 Burger King at 5:45 am for a 6:00am. sharp departure. (Parents are encouraged to car pool and to follow the bus up)

$25 Race fee for the 5 day rowers

$45 RACE FEE for the 3 day rowers


These fees help cover the cost of the entry fees, bus, and the truck and trailer.  You can pay the day of the race when you drop your child off at Burger King or on Regatta Central.



Follow either I-495 North or 128 North (i.e., I-95 N). Take to Route 3 North. Take exit 32 off of Route 3 at Rt.4 in Chelmsford.  Take your first right at the stop at the top of the exit.   Follow that straight through two sets of lights. At your third set of lights bear left through the fork.  Follow this road straight through two sets of lights.  At your third set of lights bear left through the fork (green arrow for left).   Follow straight through two more sets of lights (Market Basket on left and White Hen Pantry on your right). This will put you on the Rourke bridge which passes over the Merrimack river. Take a right off of the bridge.  The boathouse is 200 meters down on the right.
