Due to Circus Sarasota sharing the island with the regatta this weekend, there will be no opportunity to park on the island. All parking for both participants and spectators will be off-island, either in the Mote Marine lot (which is to the northwest of the park on the way to the mall and fairly small) or the South parking lot (which is at the end of the practice course, southeast corner of the park). Please anticipate parking at the south end of the park. We have been advised that there will be one trolley running with a possible 30 minute wait time. The Trolley will operate until about 30 minutes after the final races on Saturday. 

Tents/Shelter: There is a limit of only two 10x10 tents per team. These tents are designated for our student-athletes, and parents are not permitted to sit under them. We plan on putting up more tents for parents. However, we may have to take them down. Please plan accordingly with sunscreen, hats, UPF clothing, umbrellas, or your own tent to put up across the racecourse on the west side. Please visit this page for more information on what to expect on regatta days.

Volunteers Needed:  We can't participate in this regatta without help from the parents. Please sign up to help out. Please visit this link for more information about club families' required volunteer hours.
