It’s a pleasure to welcome you back to one of our area’s greatest collegiate events! The 2023 Jefferson Dad Vail Regatta is a wonderful opportunity – both to appreciate sports competition at its best and to celebrate the joy of gathering together in this year’s new location – the Cooper River. Thomas Jefferson University is pleased to once again be the title sponsor of this tradition. We salute the individual athletes who are daring to test their strength, skill and stamina in the Regatta. The Jefferson community is daring, too: Daring to ask the big, important questions of the 21st century–and daring to answer them–through research and discovery, teaching and learning, caring and healing, and redefining possible. We see a kindred spirit in the daring and dedicated women and men who will row the waters of the Cooper River in this year’s Regatta. We wish them (including our own Jefferson Rams!) the very best.
