The Course

Lake Natoma is located in the metropolitan Sacramento area [ Google Maps ], near the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is fed by the snow melt by the American River and is a year-round, multi-use recreational area.

The race course is a world-class facility for rowing, kayaking, canoeing, and other water sports. The facility is run by the Sacramento State Aquatic Center and the California State Parks and Recreation.

About JAMCO Race Bulletins

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.

Printing Tips — When printing JAMCO race bulletins, you may get better results if you set your browser to print background colors and images. If you are using MS Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced and scroll down to where you see "Printing - Print background colors and images."

Automatic Refresh — During the race, JAMCO updates race results every 500m. JAMCO web pages showing real-time results are designed to automatically reload or refresh every 30 seconds. If you are viewing a race in progress and the page does not automatically reload, please press the "Refresh" or "Reload" button on your browser.


JAMCO is completely run by volunteers, for the benefit of the rowing community. The following people helped bring you the split times and video in the morning: Michael, Patty, Debra, Drew and Stephanie. In the afternoon: Debra, Eric, Patty, Matt and Jessa. Behind the cameras were Alex, Jon and Kern.
