From the Rocketts Landing website;
On Saturday, April 7th 2012, the VCU Crew Club will host the 4th Annual Collegiate Regatta at Rocketts Landing. Rowers from universities across the region will take to the waters from 10am – 2pm. This electrifying event is free and open to the public. Of course, you’ll want to arrive at Rocketts Landing early to grab the best view as 4 and 8 person teams battle it out in 2000 meter sprints along the historic James River.
