Travel Information

CRU participates in several races throughout the year, mostly taking place from June through October.  Most races happen on weekends. For local (Midwest) races we usually leave late afternoon on Friday or Saturday and return the following day. For races that are farther away we usually fly out early on Friday and return depending on your schedule. CRU covers regatta registration and boat fees. Airfare (when applicable), hotels, and meals are not covered.
