Join Men's Crew alumni and friends for the 79th Annual Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta! Look for the Blue & Gold tent located between the 400-meter finishing wires and the Grand Stand.

We will be grilling burgers and hot dogs but feel free to bring your own meal of choice and we will happily share the grill! There will also be chips/dips, salads, granola bars, soda, water and coffee. BYOB.

Please also check the Dad Vail website for exact race times. There will be about 40 folding chairs available for seating along with alumni and crew gear for sale. There will also be a raffle and 50/50 with all proceeds from the tent and raffles supporting the UD Men's Crew program!

Event is rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, please visit www.dadvail.org for all the latest info.

Parking is available in the Mount Pleasant parking area in Fairmont Park. There is also parking on Kelly Drive, which is only available with special permits. There is a shuttle bus available from any of these areas. See the Dad Vail website for more details.

Refund deadline is May 11, 2017.

Registration closes May 10, 2017. Walk-ins are welcome at the increased price.
