Regattas:

Most regattas take place on the Merrimack River in Lowell, MA.  The center of these races is the UMass Lowell Bellegarde boathouse which should be used as your GPS address:  500 Pawtucket Blvd. Lowell, MA.  You will find a stretch of  food and hospitality tents along the river.  The coaches or food committee will share the general location of the BHS tent in advance of the race though for general orientation, use the Dunkin Donuts across the street as a landmark for our approximate vicinity.  Our tent had blue and red colors (though we are not the only ones).   Parking is available for a fee (cash only) across the street from the river, or (if you are lucky) where permitted along the river.

Worcester races take place on Lake Quinsigamond.   There is no general parking in the immediate vicinity of the races.  Spectator parking is available at the UMass Memorial Medical facility across the street, which is a short walk away.  GPS address:  55 North Lake Ave. Worcester, MA 01605.  Follow the signs for the parking.  Note:  many races charge an entry fee at the gate (in cash) so be prepared.
