Dear Xavier Crew Alum,

Xavier Crew is proud to be celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, making it among the oldest club sports at Xavier University. To honor this milestone, we invite you to join us on the weekend of April 4th for the dedication of our newest boat, and to cheer us on at The Cincinnati Regatta. 

We will start off the weekend with the dedication, and blessing of our newest boat at 6:00pm on Xavier’s campus at the Husman stage located in heart of campus. We are proud to be naming our newest boat after Mr. Paul Denning, who has served Xavier Crew as a devoted rower and coach for countless years.  On the following day, Saturday April 5th,, Xavier Crew will be participating in the Cincinnati Regatta at Lake Harsha in East Fork State Park.  We invite you to come and support the team, reminisce with old friends, and celebrate our milestone anniversary at a cookout after the races.  

So please join us on Friday April 4th at 6:00pm on Xavier’s Campus at the Husman Stage for the blessing and naming of our new boat, and on Saturday April 5th at East Fork State Park for the Cincinnati Regatta and cookout. The regatta will tentatively start at 8:00am and the cookout will start at 2:00pm. Hope to see you there! Please R.S.V.P. by emailing: with your name, the number of people attending and if you rowed for Xavier, what year(s)? If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
