For BIAC, the thrill begins with the 9:00 Government crew races.  This "Golden Oar" race began in 2010 at the first PortFest where two Redwood City government bodies (Council and Planning Commission) challenged each other to a 500 meter rowing race in collegiate eights.

This year it's a grudge match and each team has been training since August to ensure their name gets on the trophy.  You won't find this race (yet) on the book at Ceasars!
