Occoquan Memorial Sprints

OMS 2021





We are pleased to be able to host the 2021-OMS Regatta at Sandy Run Regional Park on Saturday, July 24, 2021 starting at 8:00 AM. This year, there will be a heats/finals format for 4 events [M&W/Open and Junior 1X's]. The heats in these events will be at the start of racing and finals will be held for multiple levels (A/B/C Final). The Junior 1X entries will be limited to 18 entries/3 heats.

When registering for events subject to US Rowing Handicapping standards, it is extremely important that the ages of all participants are entered accurately. Our intention is to group entries in order to create the most competitive races for all. There is a strong likelihood that different age groups will compete in the same event.

There will be a stationary one-piece starting platform at the 1000 meter mark to be used for all races down the fully buoyed six lane course. The traffic pattern used on the day of the regatta will be identical to previous years.

Since the inception of the OMS Regatta, OBC has helped generate and distribute over $75K to needy high school rowers on the Occoquan (in the form of scholarships) to assist with their program fees. ALL proceeds from the OMS regattas have gone to support the Julia Shew Memorial Scholarship Fund. We appreciate your support of this event and look forward to providing a fun and competitive experience for all. The tradition of free "ice cream Sundaes" for all attendees will be in full swing after racing near the Regatta HQ.
