Head of the Housatonic - October 12th, 2013
Hosted by the New Haven Rowing Club, the Head of the Housatonic is one of the largest single-day head races in the country attracting rowers of all levels -- from novice to elite, junior to veteran master. The regatta venue, Indian Well State Park, is situated on a stretch of the river with dams on both ends that create 4.5 miles of calm water with gentle turns. Lined by tree-covered hills, the course is 2.7 miles starting just below the park and ending at the New Haven Rowing Club boathouse across the river in Oxford, CT. Wading into the river to launch from the 1000 foot beach adds to the relaxed atmosphere of the race venue.
THE RESULTS FOR THIS YEAR'S REGATTA HAVE NOW BEEN POSTED ON THE RESULTS PAGE.
WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND OUR THANKS TO ALL THE ATHLETES, COACHES, VENDORS, VOLUNTEERS, AND SPONSORS FOR MAKING THIS YEAR'S REGATTA SO SUCCESSFUL. THANKS ALSO TO THE WEATHER GODS FOR COOPERATING (AGAIN), AND TO THE POLICE, EMS AND INDIAN WELL STATE PARK STAFF FOR THEIR SUPPORT.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE FOR THE 20th HEAD OF THE HOUSATONIC ON SATURDAY, OCT. 11, 2014!
