Head of the Fish
OUR LAST REGATTA OF THE FALL 2015 SEASON IS UPON US.
Included in this document are Directions, Instructions and Scheduling information.
But first let talk about what to bring…
PACK FOR ALL FOUR SEASONS!
No Joke. We have been to this regatta in years past and have had torrential rain, snow, and temps in the 70’s. Be prepared to have something on your head and on your feet. The morning grass is wet and cold. We want to avoid hypothermia. Bring a blanket or sleeping bag in your dry bag. Yes bring something to put your stuff in that is water proof. Coxswains may want to bring a flashlight!
Parents and Rowers, leave a dry set of clothes in your car for the ride home.
You’ll thank me later!

DIRECTIONS TO HEAD OF THE FISH
The venue is at Lee's Park - please use 1464 Rt 9p Saratoga Springs, NY 12866 (For those that haven’t been, this event is held in a campground. Don’t be surprised when you see seasonal campsites and are directed to park in a driveway!)
Parking opens at 5:30am. Parking is $15. Traffic will likely be backed up in the morning to the Northway Exit 14. Be aware of this delay. Please notice the map: Vehicles (other than buses and Boat Trailers) will go PAST the Boat Launch opening and turn left immediately after the blue building. It is a one-way entrance. Park where you are told, cars will be towed.
A complimentary shuttle will be offered on Sunday on a 15 minute rotation. The shuttle will bring any spectators or athletes back and forth from downtown Saratoga Springs. Whether you use it to get athletes to the race who don't want to take the "early bus" or your spectators want to run into town after the race to do a little Christmas shopping, or you just want to have lunch in a warm building between races - the 2 buses will be picking up every 15 minutes.
