Program for 2019 Royal St. John's Regatta will be determined

The race day program for the 2019 Royal St. John’s Regatta will be determined following today’s Time Trials on Quidi Vidi Lake.

The Trials get under way at 8 a.m., with 24 races scheduled. A total of 113 crews are registered — 81 female and 32 male teams (see breakdown of crews below).

Teams are slotted for Regatta Day races within their gender/age-groups based upon times they row in the Trials heats. The crew with the fastest time in its Time Trial division gets to select the boat and stake of its choice for the Regatta, with the process continuing with the crew owning the second-fastest time, and so on.

The Regatta Committee will take all of the times from the Trials and use them to create a master schedule for the Regatta, set for Aug. 7.

Outer Cove men and m5 women had the fastest times in last year’s Trials. Neither team is back to row in the 201st Regatta.
