Follow @PennWomensCrew

PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania rowing teams are ready to get the fall portion of their 2014-15 seasons started, and that will happen on Saturday when they participate in the annual Navy Day Regatta on the Schuylkill River.

The three-mile head race will begin at 8:15 a.m. with the men’s 2- and continue throughout the day until the Mixed Masters 8+ at approximately 4:30 p.m. Races will begin at the usual Schuylkill starting spot, but continue through the finish stands and instead end closer to Boathouse Row.

All three Penn rowing programs will compete in the event, rowing throughout the day in the collegiate championships.

"We are excited to get the fall racing season started," said Penn's women's coach, Mike Lane. "We are going out this year to keep it simple, and focus on what we can control. Saturday should be a nice first test for that."
