Rowers from around the Midwest will compete in races Saturday on the Mississippi River during the 19th annual Trinity Quad-Cities Classic Regatta.

World record-holders from Y Quad-Cities Rowing will be joined by club and university teams such as University of Iowa Men’s Rowing and the Chicago Training Center. New this year are rowing events for adaptive rowers. In all, 49 races will take place between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Juniors (ages 14 to 18) and masters (age 20 and over) rowers will compete in individual, doubles, quads and eight-person events. The competition can be viewed along Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline as rowers start near the Captain’s Table and end just west of the Sylvan Boathouse, 17th Street at the Mississippi River, behind Stoney Creek Inn, Moline.

The regatta is a U.S. Rowing-sanctioned event hosted by a volunteer committee of Y Quad-Cities Rowing, the rowing program of Two Rivers YMCA.
