20th Annual Head of the Housatonic - Saturday, October 11th, 2014

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.

We will be using the same two-step registration process for trailers for the 2014 regatta that we did in 2013. All teams will have to pre-register their trailers so that we can be sure we will not exceed our capacity in the park. Cartoppers with singles, however, will NOT need to pre-register this year.

TRAILER REGISTRATION IS OPEN! Please click through to our Registration for more information and the link to Regatta Central.  Trailer registration will be open until September 5.  We will open for Event Registration from September 8-22.

We look forward to seeing another great crowd of rowers and supporters this fall!
