Race Day

Heat Sheet

2022 Heat sheet has been revised.


Results for each heat will be posted to Regatta Central. 



All rowers and spectators must park at Maritime Plaza. Print the parking pass!   See driving instructions below.  We recommend you bike, use metro or carpool with friends. 

SHUTTLE from Maritime Plaza to the boathouse

There will be a shuttle to bring rowers from the parking lot to the boathouse.  But, it will run on a limited schedule from  6:30 to 8:15 AM.  It will resume from 1:15 to 2:30 PM.   

If you have a lot of items to bring to the boathouse, you may drop off items at the boathouse entrance but must return to park at Maritime plaza.

You can wait for the shuttle at the entrance of the Maritime Plaza parking lot.  

Where to watch:

For the best view of the finish line and the pre- and post-race action (along with concessions and bathrooms), join us at the boathouse. For the best view of the complete race, we recommend the Anacostia Trail pedestrian bridge or across the river at Anacostia Park. See the race day and parking information sheet with details and maps below.

When to watch:
The coaches and coxswain meeting will begin at 7:15 AM, and races will run approximately 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM. Results will be available on Regatta Central.
