This year are team tents being located at two locations:
1.Gravel Red Rock finish line area
2.Island behind the Cooper House restaurant

The gravel red rock is packed crushed stone between the finish line and the island (about the last 300 meters of the course). The island begins approximately 500 meters to go located behind the overflow boat storage lot. The entrance to the island is behind the Cooper House restaurant so enter their parking lot and travel down to the black pavement entrance. Please put hazards on and DRIVE SLOW as people walk on the path and boats could be moving around.
Team tents are permitted to be set up after 12 Noon on Thursday.

All team tents will be assigned a tent location with a number which will be sent prior to arrival on Thursday.
• No team tents are permitted to be set up near boat trailers due to limited space.
• Any team setting up in the wrong assigned location will be asked to relocate to the proper space.
• All teams must have a reserved tent site processed thru Regatta Central in order to set up a tent. Any team that does not have this space will be asked to take down the tent.

Island tents will be numbered I-and number, example I-25, 1-35. The island has two rows, row one is along the water and goes 1 – 48. The second row goes 1 to 2, then 4 to 21. Space 3 is left empty due to vehicle path. Please be sure to set up tents with in the marked areas and do not have anything in the emergency drive pathways which are used for maintenance and emergency vehicles. The tent spaces are numbered from 1 to 48 looking at the race course moving right to left.

Gravel red rock near the finish line – there are three rows: 1, 2 and 3. The rows are numbered from LEFT to RIGHT facing the water. Row 1 goes 1 to 35, row 2 goes 1 to 40 and row 3 goes 1 to 40.

The vendor’s village is located just below the finish line. Facing the water their tents will be set up to the left of the finish line trailer.

A lot of time and effort was put into creating an atmosphere for all team tents to enjoy each other’s company and the races on the water. Please respect these efforts so that everyone enjoys this year’s regatta.

CHUCK WAGON PARKING
Chuck wagons will have a few locations to park depending on their tent assignment.
Island tents can park their trailer on the island (if space allows) out of the way. When crossing the bridge to the island the trailers can be parked to the left behind the black walking path (between the walking path and the water). Please work together to get as many chuck wagons in this space.

Gravel field tents we have marked off a section for parking along the road on the same surface. It is marked clearly with a pathway left for County vehicles so please do not block this area. Park tight next to each other with the hitch facing the road on front row and next row facing the opposite direction. It is on an incline so please be sure to put stops behind your tires.

  • No grills or open flames are allowed under the tents (Camden County Fire Marshall Regulation). Grills may be used outside of the tent.
