The entire race can be viewed from the Walkway Over the Hudson (2.5 miles from the start). Additional viewpoints are Quiet Cove Riverfront Park (¾ mile mark), Victor C. Waryas Park (2 ¾ mile mark), and Kaal Rock Park (finish line)
This regatta is named after the historic Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) Regatta (1895 – 1949). The new Poughkeepsie Regatta will be held on a section of the historic course used by the top collegiate crews for their national championship races.
Crews from Pelham to Albany will convene at the Hudson River Rowing Association Community Boathouse to compete in Junior, Collegiate and Masters events. Boats racing will include singles (1 person), doubles (2 person), quads (4 person), fours (4 person with a coxswain) and eights (8 person with a coxswain).
If you or your rowing team is interested in competing, go to Regatta Central to register.
