This weekend, tens of thousands of athletes and innumerable spectators will descend on a three mile section of the Charles River for the 55th annual Head of the Charles Regatta. CBC is proud to be sending several athletes (and a number of former athletes and coaches!) to the regatta in a number of different events (see below).
If you're interested and can't make it to Boston, a live stream of the racing is available here: https://www.hocr.org/the-regatta/livestreams/ (click on 2019).
To be able to race at the Charles, your boat must either win a bid in a lottery, or meet a qualifying standard the prior year. Qualifying standards for sculling boats are top 25% of finishers in the event. Qualifying standards for sweep boats are top half of finishers.
