Since 2002, Fordham has hosted the ”Jesuit Open Interconference Regatta,” which began as the “Jesuit Cup Regatta” in 1955, and the “Greater New York Dinghy Regatta,” which was founded as the “Greater New York
Dinghy Championship” in 1948.
Fordham and Columbia now Co-Host these two major 18-team events. The former attracts top teams from
multiple conferences while the latter has become a very competitive, MAISA-NEISA regatta.
Moreover, because of the synergy created by the FORDHAM-COLUMBIA joint venture, the MAISA Executive Committee has added the Rams & Lions as Co-Hosts of very important competitions; such as the MAISA Club Teams’ Championship and North #1, the first of two qualifying regattas for the WAR Memorial Fall Conference Championship.
As Fordham & Columbia continue to collaborate, Co-Hosting more competitive events is anticipated.
