2012 Head of the Housatonic
The 18th Head of the Housatonic was held on Saturday, October 6, 2012 on the beautiful Housatonic River in Shelton, CT. 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. Check out our video from 2010's regatta.
