Annual Wine Country Rowing Classic

PSCC leads the initiative for a more walkable, bikeable, boatable river.

Annual Wine Country Rowing Classic

Each year PSCC member North Bay Rowing Club and SSU Crew co-host the Annual Wine Country Rowing Classic, a 5,000-meter “head” race on the first Sunday in October, attracting more than 100 clubs and 500 athletes. Rowers can sign up on regatta central for this US Rowing-registered regatta. The event is free to the spectating public, who get the best views from Shollenberger Park.

Local businesses and organizations that support this world-class event are the Petaluma Wetlands Alliance, manning the paths at Shollenberger Park for spectators; The Petaluma Marina; Community Bikes Petaluma; the Petaluma Sheriff’s Department; food and apparel vendors and the Petaluma Sheraton.

Results, competitors, event lists and more from past years can be seen on Regatta Central.

Who benefits from river access?

Rowers, ecologists & biologists, canoeists, businesspeople. Hikers, fishermen and women, homeowners, kayakers, environmental advocates, fitness enthusiasts. Naturalists, coaches, photographers… and what about you?
