Roosevelt Regatta Club
Travel & Socials
Please consider joining the Roosevelt Regatta Club for private member travel and socials.
In January of 2012, the first Roosevelt Rowing Regatta was held on the Hillsborough River in front of the old Tampa Bay Hotel's Plant Park. It was a fashionable outdoor event where folks in fine attire celebrated the of achievements of athletes competing in a sport that has endured the test of time.
This new club and its schedule of activities embraces the same qualities achieved during those past regattas. Membership will be limited in size and because there will not be enough reserved accommodations for all our members for our events, those who reserve first on-line will be included.
The club will make transportation suggestions as well as lodging and some dining reservations, however, members are welcome to make their own plans to travel to our events, where to stay and where to dine, if they like. There will certainly be time for members to explore on their own.
Feel free to call, text or email with any questions and please remember...
Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think!
