The New England Interscholastic Rowing Association is an organization that holds an annual race for high school rowing on Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester, MA for school throughout New England. The first regatta was held in 1947, and only coxed fours and eights were raced. In 1962, singles were added at lunch. Girls were added in 1974. The race distance is currently 1500 meters (as for many scholastic regattas in the U.S.). Originally, NEIRA eights raced one mile and fours three-quarters of a mile. Fours and singles moved to 1500 meters in 1970, and all crews raced 1500 m in 1972.
