Orange and Black Regatta Registration Open

Oct 20, 2022

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Registration for the Oregon State Rowing Orange and Black Regatta is now open with the event slated to begin Saturday, Nov. 19 at 10 a.m.

Alumni, parents and community members are invited to join current student-athletes for an exciting day of competition and reunions on the Willamette River. Register here. 

The event begins at 10 a.m. with registration and a welcome from head coaches Kate Maxim and Gabe Winkler followed by racing at 10:30 a.m. All boats will compete in three races, a two-mile head race and two, one-mile side-by-side competitions. The finish line is at the rowing docks making it possible to watch competition from the OSU Boathouse. Points for each race will be added between Team Orange and Team Black to determine the winner. Team Black won the trophy last year, after four years of Team Orange dominance.

Our annual alumni row will be at 12 p.m. followed by a post-race barbeque. Beaver rowing supporters will then get the opportunity to socialize with the team and witness the dedication of two new racing shells at 1pm.

In addition to the regatta, the women's and men's teams will each host an optional gathering at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18th. Locations are to be determined and will be emailed to registrants.
