Rowing's Biggest Event, the Dad Vail Regatta, Comes to Cooper River in 2023

By Cherry Hill Courier Post, Phaedra Trethan, September 19, 2022

Collegiate rowing's biggest event, the Dad Vail Regatta, is leaving the Schuylkill in Philadelphia and will be held on the Cooper River in 2023.

Organizers in a release Wednesday afternoon attributed the move to an ongoing dredging project along the Schuylkill that might impact the competition. The annual two-day race, which draws more than 100 collegiate rowers from all over the nation, will also bring tens of thousands of spectators to the park which borders Pennsauken, Collingswood, Cherry Hill and Haddon Township.

The competition, known as the Jefferson Dad Vail Regatta, was moved after its board voted unanimously to change to venue "to ensure successful production," according to its president, Jim Hanna.
