I've done this event for 5 years and I plan on continuing until I get first place, but it's not all about winning it's about having fun while on the path to winning.

The "guards" are really rude and you get into trouble for not knowing where to stand. Contestants were cool. Actual race only about 15 minutes long.

This is the Comcast Public Service Announcement that will run hundreds of times and for a couple weeks across all of its channels. See if you can catch one. First person to report what time, date, and channel they saw it on wins a free 2011 Regatta poster! Tell your friends! FYI - The ad will only run in Oregon and SW Washington.
