Regatta Central Registration

Rowing for Life - a new event in our outreach program which pairs masters rowers with youth rowers. The winning team's prize goes to the youth team.

Last year, 2016, Sarasota Scullers Youth Rowing Club won the $1,000 Rowing for Life prize by placing first with four masters rowers paired with four varsity rowers. Second place team was Gainesville Area Rowing Club, also taking home a check for $1,000.
