Registered Regattas

Registering your regatta with USRowing means that your regatta is officially and nationally recognized as a safe and fair event, meeting the highest standards for American regattas. The 2019 Registered Regatta Program continues to offer regatta organizers unprecedented ‘no additional cost’ liability benefits for the regatta and its participants.

Membership Services recently introduced the new online Registered Regatta Portal for our organizational members, including offering online registration for third-party insured regattas for the first time.

Please visit the Membership Portal and log in as your organization under ‘Organizations’ and then ‘Members’. You will be able to access the Registered Regatta Portal by clicking on the ‘Regattas’ button once you are logged in. If you are currently not able to log in with your Regatta Central account, you may not be listed in the correct role or may not be registered as your team’s administrator. You may ask your current team administrator to list you as an additional administrator or as a regatta director.

If you are having issues logging in, need assistance working through the registration system or encounter technical errors, contact Jules Zane at or (609) 789-9024.
