Governor's Cup Regatta at Riverfront Park

Salem - Saturday, April 10th, Riverfront Park will be the perfect viewing spot for the only home regatta for the Willamette Crew.

Willamette Men's and Women's Crew will be hosting, Humboldt State, Lewis & Clark and Seattle Pacific University. WUCrew looks to use the advantage of its home course to finish ahead of the field.

Races will begin at 8:00am and end at noon. Fours races will be held from 8:00-11:00am, Cup Races (eights) will be held from 11:00am-noon.

The Willamette Queen Sternwheeler will allow spectators aboard to get up close and personal to the crews on the Willamette. There will also be a pancake breakfast beginning at 7:00am (a $3 donation per person is greatly appreciated).
