Thank you to last year's sponsors.

The sponsorship of the Sarasota Invitational Regatta supports not just local rowing, but the rowing community as a whole. The SIR gives all rowers, middle schoolers, youth, masters, adaptive, competitive and novice, the opportunity to row on this world class rowing venue.

We especially want to thank Benderson Development for not only having the vision to develop Nathan Benderson Park, a world class rowing center, but also for sponsoring our 10th anniversary of this regatta.
