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.

Usually an event held for competing crews (rowing teams) to race each other. Large events usually contain various tents of buy-able items as well as each teams tent. Regatta's are usually interesting in that the weather usually sucks, you spend 90% of the time waiting for your event only for it to get delayed due to weather and when its time to race usually bow and 6 are no where to be found, you find your self flirting with the all girls crew teams conveniently placed next to your trailer, and last but not least or the limit of these epic events is the race which is usually 1500-5000 meters of pure hell (1500-2000 meters in the spring/summer months and 5000 meters in the fall). Lady's and gentlemen this is Crew.

The act of taking the gamble and getting shitfaced drunk the night before the Royal St. John's Regatta in St. John's, Newfoundland. Due to the precarious status of the holiday*, this is a risky venture. People may have to go to work with a hangover, or worse: still drunk.

*The Regatta is one of very few weather dependent holidays. If the winds are too high, the boat races are cancelled and there is no holiday. (it will be moved to the following day, weather permitting).
