The Schuylkill Navy, the umbrella organization for rowing in Philadelphia, will announce a new effort on Wednesday to unify and attract sponsors to 22 regattas held each year on the Delaware River.

“We are thrilled to bring all of these regattas together to form an outstanding season-long series,” Clete Graham, chair of the Philadelphia Classic Regatta Series advisory committee and past commodore of Schuylkill Navy, said on the Schuylkill Navy's website. “This series presents a unique opportunity for area companies to put their name on not just one, but 22 races over 9 months, reaching 50,000 spectators and fans.”

Mayor Nutter will join Graham at Vesper Boat Club on Boathouse Row for a 2 p.m. press conference on Wednesday. The largest regatta, the Dad Vail, is not included in the sponsorship drive.
