Volunteers — JAMCO is completely run by volunteers. We very much appreciates the efforts of our volunteer broadcasters who are stationed along the course in Seattle, and who are spotting the start and the arrivals of the crews at the intermediate 500 meter marks and the finish line. "Thank you" Matthew Johnson at the start line, Steve Gillespie at 500 meters, Joshua Rakita at 1000 meters, Samantha Wong at 1500 meters and Anna Mickelson at the finish line, with special thanks to Mike Callahan, Assistant Men's Varsity Coach at Washington, for coordinating this coverage for us.
Unofficial Times — JAMCO provides an independent race timing system and thus our finishing times are unofficial. JAMCO Race Reports marked “Official” contain official finish times provided by the Regatta Committee.

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.
