- Bring money for food for dinner on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We
will be eating out to keep things simple.
-Saturday will start with early racing and end with racing but have a huge
middle part of the day of just watching races. BRING SCHOOLWORK!!!
- Plan for cold, wet weather with a chance of sun. We may or may not
have a tent so prepare for all contingencies.
- There is almost no parking at the race site. All Parents will be allowed to drop athletes at the athlete drop zone at 522 Old San Pablo Dam Road, Orinda, CA; however, they will have to immediately leave the site and park at the overflow lot at the Orinda BART station.
We do get one permit for the truck so we can work out our own shuttles but we will need to plan accordingly.
-Park Opening and Closing:
Saturday – Park is open from 7am to 6pm
Course is open from 9am to 5pm
Sunday - Park gate will open at 6am
Only cars, trucks & Buses with an event permit will be admitted and allowed into the park.
-Coaches & Cox Meeting:
Saturday at noon at the Finish Line
-Boat Check for Mussels:
Please remember every boat must be checked for Quagga Muscles before launching. If you launch without a blue tag on your boat you will be disqualified. This puts our site and our ability to run regatta’s here in jeapordy. To pass the muscle inspection, boats must be dry inside and out and need to be clean. We will start checking boats at 8:00 Saturday morning. That is the earliest we can unload trailers as well. Remember if your boats don’t pass the inspection, you can’t launch. So, please come prepared, with towels, etc…
We will use a starting platform for the races to facilitate starting. This will require your crews to be able to back into a stake boat and to scull. Please help us with this. Please teach your crews to listen to the starter. We will do our best to have a fair and calm start.
Please use Bow Numbers for your lanes, it will make it easier for our finish line. We will be checking bow numbers prior to launch. This helps our finish line record accurate times, please help us with this.
There will be no Weigh-ins at Fault-line. We trust each coach to be fair and honest with their lightweight crews.
Friday: 3:00 PM Departure - You can go to school - Racing does not start
until Saturday Afternoon so no need to get there early on Friday
