CANCELLED: Friday, August 3 – Sunday, August 5, 2018 See Below
Dear 2018 Governor’s Cup Competitors:
We have been carefully monitoring the water conditions on the Chesapeake Bay since last week’s opening of the Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River. Unfortunately, massive amounts of debris (both organic and man-made) have made their way into our beautiful bay. The debris has entered the racecourse and increased the danger to navigation. Forecasts call for more rain which will only exacerbate the problem. Given that the Governor’s Cup is an overnight race; in the interest of safety we have made the decision to cancel this year’s regatta.
All fees (including those for entry, transportation, food and housing) shall be returned to competitors. St. Mary’s College of Maryland very much looks forward to hosting the 46th Governor’s Cup next summer and we hope that you will be a part of it!
