Congratulations to the Schuylkill Navy of Philadelphia, Camden County, and many partners and friends for pulling together to bring over 5,500 high school rowers the 92nd The Stotesbury Cup Regatta. A true display of resilience from organizers, vendors, spectators, and athletes resulted in a safe, fair, fun and litter-free regatta! Thank you to all (with a special shout out to parents) who have committed to helping regattas become zero waste events...together we are changing a culture, one regatta at a time. No matter the venue, you can be a steward of your waterways and parks!
