Ever Green Boat Club Announces the 2014 Alumni Sprints Regatta

Regatta Expected to Feature Alumni of Over 15 Schools; Includes Newly Designed Registration Procedures and a Celebratory Reception

GREENWICH, CT--(Marketwired - January 13, 2014) - Ever Green Boat Club, a rowing club for alumni of Dartmouth College, is pleased to announce the 2014 Alumni Sprints Regatta on April 26th and 27th in Old Greenwich, Conn. Alumni Sprints made history in 2013 as the first USRowing-sanctioned regatta specifically devoted to alumni racing.

"We're offering an expanded, two-day format this year," said Sydney Williams, the event's organizer. "Competitors arrive on Saturday, April 26th, prepare their boats for racing, and, later that afternoon and evening, attend a celebratory reception. Racing takes place on Sunday the 27th, and now includes the full 2000 meter sprint distance."

With membership scattered across the country and -- in many cases -- the globe, alumni teams stand apart from standard rowing clubs. Mr. Williams described how Alumni Sprints is introducing new procedures that address the teams' virtual nature. In particular, he highlighted volunteer David Stonehill and his work in developing a proprietary registration and lineup and entry system.

"We realized last year just how difficult it can be for Alumni teams to organize themselves and how one or two people end up doing all of the leg work," said Mr. Williams. "Our goal is to simplify the team captain's cat-herding efforts by streamlining dollar flows, providing tools to organize lineups, and encouraging early preparation to give teams the best chance possible on race day. David's system goes a long way toward helping us achieve that goal."

Racing takes places on Greenwich Cove and stages from Greenwich Point Park in Old Greenwich, Conn. Alumni rowers race the final 1000 meters (0.62 mile) of a six-lane 2000 meter (1.24 mile) racecourse, which extends across the Cove's widest section. Competitors can select from 35 events, segmented by age and boat type (single, double, quad, four, and eight), and race as often as they please.

Select bricks-and-mortar clubs are being invited to race the full course. "Some of the bigger clubs in Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, DC are looking to compete over 2000 meters," said Mr. Williams, "and Greenwich Cove offers the perfect venue. These clubs' members will also compete in the alumni events. Spectators should expect fantastic races throughout the entire day and great locations throughout Greenwich Point Park to view them."

In 2013, Alumni Sprints welcomed alumni of Boston University, Brown, Cambridge, Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, Georgetown, Northeastern, Oxford, Princeton, the United States Military Academy, Wisconsin, Williams, Yale, and even New Zealand's University of Otago. An even larger contingent is anticipated for 2014.

"As with last year, we'll include elite-level athletes and folks who are simply looking to get back into rowing," added Mr. Williams. Alumni Sprints will award a Team Points Trophy to the alumni club placing highest across all events.

To qualify as alumni, competitors in team boats must have attended the same academic school. Although participants will mostly represent college alumni teams, Alumni Sprints welcomes individuals who wish to represent alumni teams of secondary schools. All alumni can compete, whether long-experienced or new to the sport.

Visit www.alumnisprints.org to register. Competitors, friends and family are invited to a pre-race celebration on Saturday, April 26th at the Hyatt Regency in Old Greenwich, Conn. Festivities begin at 4:00 pm and coincide with regatta check-in.

Prospective sponsors should contact Sydney Williams directly.
