Safety Tips


Q: "Do we have to register to participate?"

A. Yes.  Due to the size of the River Regatta the United States Coast Guard issues the event a special permit that allows the closure of the Colorado River  and the creation of the event safety zone to ensure the safety of the participants. The Coast Guard permit states that only registered participants are allowed within this safety zone all others are subject to a fine and /or removal from the event.
