Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta
It’s a Philadelphia school defending the title this year. The Drexel men won the Heavyweight 8 and the overall points title last year.
The annual Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta is underway on the Schuylkill River. Organizers say this is the biggest Dad Vail in history, with more than 3,800 competitors.
On the second Saturday of May every year, the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta takes on two days of 120 college students and their crews from across the U.S. in an unforgettable series of boat races.
It’s a Philadelphia tradition. Thousands of college rowers and spectators are packing Kelly Drive for the 73rd Aberdeen Dad Vail regatta.
