General Information

The Main Line Slide: Philadelphia Indoor Rowing Championships is the Philadelphia area Concept II satellite regatta for the C.R.A.S.H. B Sprints. Hosted by Villanova University Crew, the indoor regatta will take place in the Jake Nevin Fieldhouse in Villanova, PA on January 29, 2000.

The Main Line Slide will allow for competition in  events for men and women, heavyweight and lightweight, from the Junior ranks up through Veterans. But most importantly, the Main Line Slide will host the first ever competition to use the Slides by Concept II.  

As a separate entry, an organization's Crew (8), will qualify individually to the final in which all 8 will compete on the slides as a complete crew. The crew who is closest (percentage off) to the Record Time for their category will WIN the set of slides for an 8 for their organization (a $1200 value).

With the addition of Masters Rowing Association to our list of major sponsors, winners of the Master, Senior, and Veteran events will win a year's membership to the organization.

A number of new Concept II Model C ergs will be available for sale after their use in the indoor regatta. The price for these will be $695 each. Villanova Crew will also be selling some of their older Model C's as well for $600 each. If you are interested in purchasing one of these ergs, please send an email to
