Spectator Parking: Parking for spectators is located on Reservoir Road above the Strawberry Mansion bridge. Parking on Kelly Drive is for coaches and competitors only. Spectators are allowed to unload items in the drop-off zones located on Kelly Drive. The first zone is located at the middle driveway to the main trailer lot. The second zone is approximately 500 meters south of the SJU Boathouse. Drivers must then continue to offsite parking on Reservoir Road. A free parking shuttle (see below) will be available to bring passengers to a drop area on Kelly Drive or a drop area at Boathouse Row. Go to the Maps section for a shuttle map and offsite parking locations.
Parking Shuttle: A free parking shuttle will run from 10:00am to 6:30pm in a continuous loop between the parking area, the SJU boathouse, and Boathouse Row. The four white school buses, provided by the Philadelphia Trolley Works, are the same buses that will be used in the evening for the Terror Behind The Walls at the Eastern State Penitentiary. If you see a big white vehicle that says 'GHOST BUS' that is your ride!! The buses will have a sign in the window that says 'Navy Day Regatta'. After 4:30pm the shuttles will shift to one 'Big Bus' to complete the transportation for the remainder of the day.
Team Tents & Food Trailers: (Updated 10/12/16) All team tents and food trailers (Chuckwagons) will be located south (downriver) of the public dock launch area (see Map #3 in the Maps section). There will be a drop-off zone and attendants specifically located at the beginning of this area for spectators to unload items and receive assistance in transporting it to your team area. New this year there will be a managed parking area for Chuckwagons. No permit needed for this area but you will need a competitor parking pass from your Regatta Central account holder.
