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.

EVENT REGISTRATION RUNS FROM SEPTEMBER 8-22 ON REGATTA CENTRAL! Please click through to our Registration page for more information and the link to Regatta Central.  All cartoppers and all clubs that registered their trailers can register for racing events and reserve tent space.
