Attended my first Great Valley Regatta this year, it was a great time. The camping was a little muddy, but what can you expect with all the rain? I have a group of friends that has been going for over 20 years, so it was cool to tag along with people who know what to expect. I think there were over 3000 boats this year, so many that they actually cut-off registration early this year. It is more like a weekend-long party with a paddle thrown in for good measure, but I highly recommend going! I know I will be back next year!

Our "camp"- 'Checkpoint 6'


Some pregame festivities!

Our crew droppin' in...

Some of the madness where we started..


Anything that floats!

Getting beer at the first checkpoint (and watching people flip over!)

Got a little elbow room finally!


It became increasingly difficult to find your boat after many beers and the "layers" of boats kept growing!
