60th Duluth International Regatta


60th Annual Duluth Regatta

Saturday, July 14th, 2018

You are invited to participate in the 60th Duluth International Regatta on Saturday, July 14, 2018 in Duluth, Minnesota, sponsored by the Duluth Rowing Club


The Duluth International Regatta is an USRowing certified and classic rowing event with 29, 2000-meter and 1000 meter Master events for both men and women. The racing events are available in the Junior, Open and Master’s categories. Each race will be run as a 7 lane time trial with the fastest time determining the winner. Because of the time saved by not running heats, we have a full complement of races available.

An awards ceremony and banquet will be held at the regatta site follow the racing. The regatta will be run with USRowing referees officiating, up-to-date timing, starting platforms, entry and departing docks, concessions including rowing gear and clothing.

If you have any questions, visit our website at duluthrowing.com or for registration information call Bonnie or Dave at 218 464-3510. We hope you will join us on the water this summer for great racing at the headwaters of Lake Superior.
