Alumni function is a key piece of the excitement of the Brown Cup races. Alumni races run in the morning over a short course. Historically the Alumni Races have not been supervised by umpires which leads to inevitable cheating as crews work to 'align" their hulls. This "alignment" serves to further shorten the alumni race course.
FRIDAY NIGHT ALUMNI ROW and SOCIAL
Get ready for Brown Cup fun with your fellow alumni. Join in for a row on the Gorge followed by a social at Swan's Brewpub. If you are interested in racing the alumni race please fill in the form below before March 22. Alumni crews will be put together and lineups will be sent out shortly thereafter.
FORMAT - The Alumni race will align with a standing start from Bay Street Bridge to the Johnson Street Bridge. Viewing of the finish is encouraged from the new Johnson Street bridge. HULLS - Varsity and Reserve Race hulls will not be used for the alumni races.
