WBC RACING TEAM
WBC’s racing team is comprised of members who are interested in participating in the Summer Sprint Races and/or the Fall Head Races. All members of the racing team must be approved by the head coach. Anyone on the racing team who wants to race will have the opportunity to do so, with the coach seating the most competitive boats first, but finding seats for everyone. Regatta fees will apply.
Typically, WBC will participate in sprint regattas including the Schuylkill Navy Regatta, Independence Day Regatta, Carnegie Lake Regatta (Princeton), Diamond State Regatta (Middletown, DE), and Quaker City Masters Regatta, with several members also competing at Masters’ Nationals each year.
In the fall, WBC usually participates in head races at Kings Head (upper Merion), Head of the Christina (Wilmington, DE), Navy Day Regatta, Head of the Charles (Boston) (dependent on accepted entries), and Head of the Schuylkill.
Two Racing Practices are scheduled each week during the Summer Sprint Race and Fall Head Race seasons. Typically, 2 coaches will be present for each racing practice. Racing practices may be attended by non-racing members who have the approval of the Head Coach. A seasonal racing fee will apply to attend race practices.
