Dear Collegiate Rowing Competitor: 
This year represents the 78th DAD VAIL REGATTA. Our regatta will be held on May 13th and 14th, 2016 on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA. Notwithstanding recently unfolding date conflicts with NCAA qualifying regattas, the Dad Vail Regatta will adhere, as in the past, to the longstanding schedule of presenting our renowned event on the same weekend.  
Please accept our invitation to join as an Affiliate Member* of the Dad Vail Regatta, which is an OPEN Regatta. The Affiliate Fee for the 2016 Regatta remains at $1,500. As an Affiliate Member School you will be entitled to the following advantages: 
  1. First four boats entered are free - This includes Singles, Pairs, Fours or Eights.
  3. A reduced boat entry fee - If you enter more than four boats you pay only $300 for each additional boat. Non-Affiliates pay $450 for each boat entered. The entry fee for the Single is $200 for both categories.
  5. Guaranteed entry to all events in the Regatta - As an Affiliate Member you need not worry; one entry in each event is guaranteed. (Please note that all entries must be received by the Deadline Date.) 
    Non-Affiliates will be entered on a space available basis.
The following amenities are available for all participants: 
  • Potential financial support to Henley Royal Regatta or Henley Women's Regatta for selected successful crews
  • Feeding of the Athletes a complimentary lunch on both days of the regatta.
  • Alumni Site on the banks of the river - A great way to entertain and to assemble former rowers and friends of rowing. Tent rentals are available.

Whether you become an Affiliate Member School or not, you will enjoy all the amenities that we have in place to celebrate our 78th regatta. Athletes and coaches will continue to enjoy the convenience of our launch area with our state of the art launch docks. Located below the race course, this area allows crews to practice on the river, and also makes launching before the race and docking after the race very convenient. Our beautiful awards dock will be exciting for all medal winners. 
Regatta Central serves as Internet Agent for the Dad Vail Regatta registration and all Dad Vail entries. Please register at Regatta Central and remit all payments to them. REMEMBER THE AFFILIATE PAYMENT DATE IS December 16, 2015
