Regatta Volunteers

Happy Spring!
The weather is finally breaking, ice is still flowing down the Detroit River, and the athletes are training for the spring rowing season.
I am hoping that you will be able to help out this year with the high school regattas.
The Hebda Cup is set for Saturday, April 25th and the Wy-Hi is scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd.
This year is the 51st Hebda Cup, and will feature the seven schools that row out of the WBC along with a few out-of-town crews
The following weekend, the Wy-Hi will see us host the seven schools along with Saline, Marietta, and the Grand Rapids area schools.
As in years past, the WBC regattas have been a first class, safe event because of volunteers and officials like you, so I am asking again for your support.
Please let me know by email at fmekolonjr@yahoo.com if you will be able to help. You can also call me at 734-934-3378.
I look forward to seeing everyone again, as we play host to the dedicated athletes, and provide them with memories that will last them a lifetime.

Regards,
Fred Mekolon-Regatta Chair

Spring High School Regattas

The 2015 High School rowing racing season will be here soon. The Wyandotte Boat Club sponsors two regatta each spring. The 51st Hebda Cup is scheduled for Saturday, April 25th at 8am, and the Wy-Hi Regatta is set for Saturday, May 2nd.

Both regattas are held in BASF Waterfront Park along the Detroit River next to the club. The seven schools that row out of the club will be racing along with out-of-town schools at both regattas. So come on down and cheer for your favorite school as these male and female athletes race down the river.

Winter training – tank and erg room rentals

Rowing teams – make the most of your winter training time by renting WBC’s indoor training facilities.  While the rowing tanks (able to seat 7 port and 7 starboard sweep rowers) are the most requested facility, WBC can also support large team training sessions with 25 ergs and a weight room.  Please use the contact form (select “tank and erg rental” as the subject) to request details.

Cleaning supplies

Please help us by picking up a few extra rolls of paper towels, or cleaning supplies on your next shopping trip and swing them by the club when you get a moment. We are trying to keep the germs at bay this winter to provide the student athletes a great environment. THANKS to everyone who has donated so far!
