Glastonbury Race Details

The season has started! See the results on the Race Results page.

The Girls Varsity 1-4 and the Boys Varsity 1-4 will be having their first race on Sunday, April 27 in Glastonbury CT.

The Plan:
5:15am Bus leaves HHS
8:15am Bus Arrives at Glastonbury

They will be holding a coxswain meeting at 9:00am down on the black docks. The first race will be going off at 10:00am, so all 2nd varsity girls should plan to launch as soon as the coxswain meeting is over (9:30 at the latest!). For the rest of the crews, please plan on launching 30-45 minutes ahead of your scheduled race time. Race officials will also be making launching announcements if boats are running late. If you need to hot seat, please let our dock master, Amy Potter, know at the coxswain meeting.

Award Ceremony:
They plan on presenting awards at 1:30pm near the boat ramp/ launching area.

Driving Directions:
All spectators and athletes must park at Nayaug School due to parking restrictions at the marina. There will be a shuttle bus that will run between the school and the marina that starts at7:00am and ends at 2:30pm. Handicap parking will be available in front of the marina gates.

Marina GPS Address: 684 Tryon Street South Glastonbury, CT 06073
Nayaug School GPS Address: 222 Old Maids Lane South Glastonbury, CT 06073

Food Tents:
Food Tents are welcome! If you look at the course map, you will see that there is a space designated for tents.  This space is to the left of the driveway, down a slight hill, and right on the water. It’s a great spot to watch races!

Boat Trailers:
They are very tight for space, due to the marina’s privately owned boats. In the past, they have asked coaches to back their trailers into Seaboard Marina. It makes for less of a headache at the end of the day! As you back in through the front gates, following the dirt road to the right. Glastonbury coaches will be at the marina at 7:00am to help with trailers, so no need to worry!
