Race Course

The race course is on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia.



The Boosters rent a tent site along the river, which will be our home for the weekend.  All the food is set up here. We’ll send an email as soon as the early drivers get there .  Look for the blue W-L Crew tents along the path. All parents who attend as spectators are welcome to eat at the tent – food is provided throughout the day.

Traditionally, W-Lee Boosters provides meals for our team and their parents at the Stotesbury Regatta.  We prepare and serve five meals on site. Rowers are on their own for only one meal – Friday night. That evening rowers get an allowance for a meal at restaurants near the hotel. That means we cook (and need parent volunteers for):
