The 41st Annual Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta, Sunday, November 9, 2014.
Bill Braxton’s family, close friends, coaches and The Philadelphia Girls’ Rowing Club are proud to present the 41st annual rowing of the Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta. After a long history on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, the Regatta was moved to the Cooper River in Camden County, NJ in 2011.
The Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta honors the spirit of Bill Braxton, who was killed in an auto accident after his sophomore year at Marietta College. Earlier that year, 1973, Bill and his Lighweight 8 crew went undefeated and won the Dad Vail Regatta. The Bill Braxton Memorial Regatta stands for the selfless dedication of the true oarsman, one who holds the true spirit of competition as a healthy, integral part of life.
Proceeds from the Regatta fund two scholarships, awarded to deserving high school rowers to help pay for college education.
