NBP Rowing Festival

November 4 & 5, 2017

Nathan Benderson Park hosts the annual NBP Rowing Festival each year in Sarasota, Florida on North America’s premier 2,000-meter sprint course.

The NBP Rowing Festival offers opportunities for rowers and paddlers alike with our expansive race options.

The Sarasota-Bradenton Chase Race provides a spectacular course, starting and finishing with 700 meters of launch and recovery dock.  Each crew will have a decision to make as you come out of the return canal: race down the Regatta Island shore in front of your fans or continue across the lake and carry your speed along the western shore where your coach will be there cheering you on.

We are gearing up for an exciting event with rowing and Dragon Boat races and are pleased to announce the addition of the Beer, Boats, and Bacon festivites that will be taking place during the event!

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the NBP Rowing Festival, please contact Jessica Shorin at jessica@sanca.us

More details coming soon!
