Season Opener

The Ithaca Crew spring racing schedule begins this Saturday with the Cayuga Duals. Racing begins at 11am, with crews launching 45 minutes prior to their events. The last races are scheduled for 3:24. Most crews will race twice in the double dual format, with crews from Ithaca, Bucknell, Cornell Lightweights, Franklin/Marshall, Hobart/WilliamSmith, and Mercyhurst. Because of the number of visiting crews, Boathouse parking will be restricted to visiting crew trailers. Spectator parking will be available Saturday morning at the Palisade parking lot across the tracks from the Boathouse. This lot is accessed from Cascadilla street, Cascadilla is a left turn at Purity Ice Cream from Rt 13 north (Meadow Street) and proceeding 2 blocks, or a right turn from Fulton St (Rt 13 south)and proceeding one block. On Cascadilla, turn right at Rick’s Rental, follow around right at the Palisade building, then left into their lot by the RR tracks. Please do not park in the Rick’s Rental lot.

Best viewing of the racing itself is from the west side of the inlet along Rt. 89 (Taughannock Blvd). From Court St or Cascadilla St, turn right on Rt. 13 south (Fulton St). Turn right at Buffalo Street, stay in the right lane. Cross over the small inlet bridge and turn right at the next traffic light, Taughannock Blvd., Rt. 89. Follow Taughannock over the next (large) inlet bridge which goes over the race course, and then follows the course along the west shore. The finish line is just across the inlet from the Ithaca Farmers Market. Boathouse spectators may also view the last 500 meters of the race along the Waterfront Trail which passes by the Boathouses and follows along the inlet to the finish line at the Ithaca Farmers Market.

During the second weekend of April, IC Crew will be hosting an alumni gathering to cheer on the crews for the weekend of home racing, Saturday 4/8 and Sunday 4/9. Make sure to like the Ithaca College Crew Facebook page for updates and RSVP to the Facebook event, or direct link:
