FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Roht Marine has donated their docking service to NSRWA free of charge, therefore we don’t want to take up parking spaces for their other paying customers. Parking at Roht Marine is very limited, so we encourage carpooling or drop-offs. If you must park, please do so at the scenic turn off on Rt. 3-A and walk over the bridge. Please arrive at the dock at least 15 minutes prior to departure time. See Google map for parking location.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
