The Rose of Nelson batteau returns for the May 8 Rivanna Regatta!
The Rose of Nelson Batteau will once again work its way down the Rivanna River on race day and dock at Darden Towe Park this year or (if not enough water) will be on a trailer at Darden Towe Park for the day on May 8.
The Virginia Canals and Navigation Society will also have a table display to educate visitors about the batteau, canals and early river history and exploration in Virginia.
Come on out to Darden Towe Park on Saturday, May 8 to cheer on the canoe and kayak racers as they cross the finish line and learn more about this historic batteau. Bring the entire family because there will be other activities and displays to enjoy also. Pack a picnic lunch and help make this event a community-building and river appreciation event!
