The Harvard-Yale Regatta otherwise known as the Yale-Harvard Regatta is the longest running collegiate athletic competition in the United States. Gales Ferry is part of this long history as both teams have training camps on the Thames River. The Yale Camp is on Riverside Place in Gales Ferry Village. You can find Harvard just up the road on Military Highway at Red Top. Yesterday, Ledyard Mayor Rodolico presented each team with a 150th Anniversary proclamation. With a sense of humor and not to offend either team, the Mayor made sure that Yale’s proclamation read “The Yale-Harvard Regatta" while Harvard’s proclamation reversed the order.
