Dad Vail Regatta Organizing Committee ceremony honoring Congressman Bob Brady and board member Gregory Montanaro. Congressman Brady received an award from DVROC for leading the campaign to dredge the Schuylkill River and remove obstacles that threaten competitive and casual rowing, including the 79-year old Dad Vail Regatta. Montanaro was awarded a traditional Dad Vail Gold Jacket for his dedicated service to the Regatta as a long-time member of its board of directors. In the photo, starting left is Gregory Montanaro, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DVROC Chairman Jack Galloway, Congressman Bob Brady and DVROC President Jim Hanna. 
Usrowing Safety Guidelines 
The safety committee of the United States Rowing Association was formed in 1987 to serve as an advisory group to the organization in the area of safety. Their governing document is not meant as an all-inclusive treatment of rowing safety, as all possible situations and types of rowing could not be covered in such a brief forum. The guidelines in their governing document are meant to serve as an outline for your own safety program. Their Safety Committee welcomes your questions and comments.

SafeSport Policy 
The Dad Vail Regatta Organizing Committee (“DVROC”) has joined USRowing and the United States Olympic Committee in their SafeSport campaigns aimed at raising awareness, stopping child abuse in sport and creating a safe culture in sports programs across the country. DVROC’s program is designed to insure athlete safety and promote an environment free from six forms of prohibited conduct to include actual or alleged bullying, hazing, harassment (including sexual harassment), emotional misconduct, physical misconduct and sexual misconduct (including child sexual abuse).
