Nov 8, 2021

CORVALLIS, Ore. - The annual Orange and Black Regatta is back and set for a 9:00 a.m. start on Saturday, November 13th at the Oregon State Rowing Center.
 
The inter-squad scrimmage is a public event that brings alumni, families & community members together to support the athletes in their final race of the fall season.
 
The morning begins with a welcome gathering and a beaver gear sale at 9:00 a.m. Racing will begin at 9:30am as boats compete up stream to the docks. All boats will compete in 3 races, a two miler head race and two 1 mile side by side competitions. The finish line is at the rowing docks making it possible to watch competition from the OSU Boathouse. Point's for each race will be added up between the women's & men's teams to then determine a winner, team black or orange team. Team orange has been the reigning champion since 2018.
 
An alumni row is slated for 11am and followed by a barbeque and boat dedications for the 13 pairs that were purchased between both men's & women's teams in 2020. Following the awarding of the trophy, a tailgate for the football game will kick off prior to the football game against Stanford at 2:30pm.
