It’s that time again for Long Beach State’s annual regatta, the Naples Island College Head Race and the Novice Sprints, sponsored by The Queen Mary, the Long Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Long Beach Century Club. Join us this weekend as several Southern California teams go head to head around the 4200m course around Naples Island. Race times begin 8:00AM on Saturday.
The Seal Beach Lions Club is hosting breakfast at the Long Beach State Boathouse Saturday morning 9:00AM-12:00PM for a $5 donation.
At approximately 10:00am there will be an awards ceremony on the wash deck of the Pete Archer Boathouse to the top performing crews. The Beach Crew Alumni Association will be presenting, for the first time, a perpetual trophy to the overall outstanding team, named in honor of the Queen Mary. The Queen Mary Trophy will be presented to the winning school by Queen Mary Commodore Everette Hoard. We will also be dedicating a 4+ racing shell in honor of LBSU alum John Cashman. LBSU President Dr. Jane Conoley will be the featured speaker.
