On April 1st, 2017 the Tulsa Youth Rowing Association will host the Route 66 Invitational Regatta at Roger’s Point Park in Catoosa, OK. Rowing Teams from Oklahoma and surrounding states will compete in side by side sprint races over a 1000m race course on the McClellan-Kerr channel close to the Port of Catoosa.
This is the third time TYRA has hosted this event. The regatta has grown over the years and looks to continue that trend. Last year the event featured three hundred rowers from ten different programs from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Kansas. Racing will start around 7:00am and will finish around 5:00pm. Many different boat types will be racing from single sculls to eight sweep boats. The teams participating will feature youth athletes and adult masters rowers.
The regatta serves as a fundraiser for TYRA and is also a platform to help promote the sport of rowing in the region.
The results are in!
