DELAWARE & MARYLAND STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS
APRIL 28, 2018
ST. ANDREWS, NOXONTOWN, DE
DIRECTIONS: You are aiming for the Noxontown Pond Launch Ramp.
The race course at St. Andrews is on Noxontown Pond, the school’s private lake. The lake is more sheltered than some venues; races are less likely to be cancelled for wind. This is also one of the easier venues from which to spot your rower. The course is in a very narrow part of the lake and spectators are permitted to be on the banks of the lake right up to the water making it easier to see (though binoculars still help!)
PARKING: Parking is free and is on an unpaved , unmarked field. You may receive no direction about where to park. When you make your way through the fenced entrance you will want to head toward the far right.
The venue has no indoor facilities or paved areas. It can be wet, muddy and chilly, so be sure to dress for the weather – you will be out in the elements all day. A big blanket to wrap up in and shoes appropriate for a muddy field will come in handy. Be sure to bring your own seating – folding chairs are great. Portable toilets will be available. No food is sold at this venue. The Whitman Crew tent, where rowers will fuel up with healthy snacks and parents will congregate, will be set up near the finish line – as the you enter the race venue, head to the far right.
Lane 6 is closest to the visiting crews’ launching area and lane 1 is closest to the St. Andrew’s campus. The race goes from left to right, with the boats coming in sight for the last half of the race.
CLICK TO GIVE TODAY! All money raised from our contributors goes directly towards the purchase and repair of our shells, oars, boat equipment, launches, trailer and other physical assets necessary to operate the team. Our coaches work hard to stretch our capital by repairing existing equipment, selling old equipment, renting out equipment that isn't being used during the summer, and purchasing both new and used equipment. All Whitman Crew families with an athlete who will row this spring are required to make a minimum tax-deductible contribution for the year. Like last year, this year's active athletes' are required to contribute a minimum of $450 per athlete. All contributions are tax deductible due to the club's 501c (3) status, and, as such, we welcome additional donations beyond the required amount.
