Hi:
I am currently involved in a campus design project, where we are
considering the inclusion of a about 1000 M (3,000 ft) man-made rowing
pond/canal.

The Architectural Standards book I have has very little information
on design of rowing facilities. Does anyone have any experiencesin designing
rowing ponds in tropical climates? I would like to know any of your
experiences, insights into this. There is a narrow stream of water adjacent to
our site and it does not run all around the year. We can assume that it has
plenty of water available during rainy season though! The ground water
availability seems to be pretty good. Does any one know of / have experience
with large water bodies such as rowing ponds supported by ground water alone?


Most of all, I need some basic dimensional information such as the
width of each lane (we are considering about 6 lanes.. is it too less or more?)
Docking facilities etc. If there is any literature available on this sibject..
references will be hightly appreciated.

Thanks very much. Bye.
