Regatta (ri-ga't-ta) n: A time when the different chapters of the Cult of Crew meet around the world to test each other and themselves in some of the worst conditions known to man. These strange creatures attend these events, which can last up to several days, from mid March to early November. They will come, and they will fight no matter weather. Only two things have the power to stop the cult members (commonly known as "rowers") from participating in these time-honored rituals: The Gods of Wind and Lightning. And even the God of Lightning is only powerful enough to pause the proceedings; without the help of Wind, Lightning will only delay the event for a mere half hour. On occasion, Wind will ask his fellow gods, Rain, Cloud, Hail, Mud, Cold, and Snow to help him in his quest to make the Rowers as miserable as possible. However, when Wind isn't looking, Sun will often take pity on the Rowers and will make himself known, brining hope and renewed spirit to the wretched souls. At the end of the event, the different chapters pack up their equipment and head home, only to begin preparing to attend another regatta the following weekend.
