Regatta Index and Schedule is below. Note new start times.

This year's Evening Big Row begins at 5:00 pm at the Redwood Shores course.

The #2 Cal Bears men's varsity crew, fresh off a hard fought one length victory over Washington last weekend, will race the #5 Stanford Cardinal. In two previous meetings between these crews earlier this month, Stanford, the only crew to have bested Cal this year, defeated Cal in the preliminary heat at the San Diego Crew Classic. Stanford led wire to wire for a close finish, only to have Cal reverse the outcome in the finals of San Diego's Copley Cup, which Cal won in another very close race, holding off a fast closing Cardinal crew in the last 250 meters. This is a rubber match you won't want to miss.

The Lady Bears undefeated varsity, also ranked #2 in the country, will take on Stanford's women, with Stanford looking for a big upset that would push Stanford up in the polls and enhance its chances for a team bid for the NCAA Nationals in Sacramento in late May.

New JAMCO Radio — New this year is live streaming-audio descriptions to compliment our real-time graphics of the races.

Volunteers — JAMCO is completely run by volunteers. Today's results were made possible by members of Cal women's crew, who provided incisive commentary and acted as JAMCO split time spotters at the start, finish and interval marks, including Allie, Bobbie, Jamie, Kendall, Kristin, Maggie and Summer. Thank you to all. Special thanks to Dave O'Neill, Head Coach of the undefeated Cal women's crew who coordinated these volunteers for us.

Unofficial Times — JAMCO takes its own finishing times and those are the first finishing times to appear on JAMCO's real time race result pages. Those pages are marked “unofficial” because the Regatta Committee is also taking finishing times, and its times are the “official” times. The Regatta Committee provides JAMCO with its “official” times after the races are over, and JAMCO then enters the “official” times on its reports. Therefore, there may be a considerable delay in replacing the “unofficial” times with “official” times, but the order of finish should not change.

Color Coding — Real time movements by crews during each 500 meter interval are highlighted by different colors. Gold (yellow) crews are closing on the leader in the current 500. Silver (light blue) crews are closing on the second place crew, but falling further behind the leader. Bronze (orange) crews are closing on the third place crew, but falling further behind the leader and the second place crews. White crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.
