Races are 2000 meters for Junior (age 13-18) and Open (age 19-26) rowers, and 1000 meters for Masters (age 27+) rowers. The 2000 meter races have stake boats at the starting line. The regatta is sanctioned by US Rowing.
The race course is on Superior Bay at the site of the Duluth Rowing Club. However, wind and weather conditions sometimes require moving the race course to Lake Superior across the street from the DRC.
The Duluth Regatta generally attracts over 300 spectators who enjoy a festive atmosphere watching exciting races throughout the day.
**Due to COVID concerns, the 2021 Duluth Regatta is canceled. Watch this space for information on the 2022 Duluth International Regatta.**
