Parking and More at Nationals

Nationals is in a more suburban area and parking and logistics is much easier than at Stotes. For more information on the regatta, schedule, race course and more go to: https://www.sraa.net/regatta-site.html

 

There is a big parking lot near the river but it will fill up quickly. It is the same lot that the chuck wagons will be in. It does empty out and fill up as the day goes on. There is plenty of street parking as well. Below there is an address to the venue as well as course information. Here is a link to the Map for parking:
