The 2016 Northwest Junior Regional Championships will be held on Vancouver Lake in Vancouver, Washington on Friday, May 20, Saturday, May 21, and Sunday, May 22, but because of earlier racing on Friday morning, we will actually be leaving for the regatta on Thursday afternoon May 19. There will be a six-lane, 2,000-meter buoyed race course. Racing is tentatively scheduled from approximately 8:00am to about 4:30pm on Friday, 7:00am to 4:30pm on Saturday, and from 7:00am to 12:00pm on Sunday. The final schedule will be known closer to the regatta date.
