Hanover Invitational 6/3 – Plan and Race Schedule

Sunday June 3rd is the Hanover Invitational/Sleigh Cup. 

All visiting crews will boat out of the Old Chieftan/Kendall property except Concord(FOCC) and HHS crew will boat out of FOHC boathouse.  When the Hanover/Concord Crews finish their races, they will ride the shuttle to hang out with all the visiting teams and watch races. This will allow all teams to be in one place for the awards ceremony.  Thank you Concord and HHS for staying at the FOHC Boathouse because it allows us to fit more crews at Kendall River Park.

Please remember that there is no parking at the Kendall/Chieftan or FOHC site. The shuttle will be running from Garipay and the Richmond parking from 9:30am-4:30pm. Buses can drop off and park on the Kendall/Chieftain property. One food car can be on site from each school.

All schools will be in charge of their own food tent.

Hanover Crew parent, the sign up genius link is here for food:


Please do not arrive with trailers before 8am. We will be in trouble with the town if you do! PLEASE BRING LANE MARKERS!

P.S. The Entry Fee for this regatta is by donation. Donations can be made out to FOHC and would be appreciated for the associated costs with running the regatta.
