There will be several categories of racing, the first race beginning at approximately 8 a.m.
Fall races are 5,000 meters in length, meaning the boats must go the full length of the lake. Spring races are 2,000 meters.
The longer races are more of a test of the rowers’ strength and endurance and they are very winded and fatigued by the end. It is survival of the fittest.
Other races for this school year are Nov. 11 (Mission Bay/San Diego), Dec. 2 (Long Beach, Calif.), March 2 (Tempe Town Lake), April 8 (Long Beach) and May 5 (Gold River, Calif.).
