PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s been a Philadelphia tradition for 92 straight years, but this year the famed Stotesbury Regatta is moving to New Jersey.
The event is the largest high school regatta in the world.
Organizers were concerned that Tuesday’s storm, along with the rain forecasted the rest of the week, would cause dangerous conditions on the river.
On Tuesday, they made the unprecedented decision to move the competition to Camden’s Cooper River.
Racing gets underway Friday morning and wraps up Saturday night.
