The Head of the Charles Regatta (the largest regatta in the world!) starts this Friday (10/20) here at our home on the Charles River. CRLS Crew has three coaches and five team boats racing over the course of the three day weekend.
The races can be viewed through livestream hocr.org/the-regatta/livestreams (starting Friday at 7 AM), but there is nothing more fun than cheering for our CRLS Crews on the banks of the Charles River while they compete in this prestigious race in our own backyard. The greatest views are from the bridges (particularly Weeks, Anderson, and Eliot), and from CRLS Crew’s home at the Cambridge Boat Club (CBC). If you would like to watch at CBC, tell the attendants at the gate in the CBC parking lot the name of your student-athlete (even if they are not competing) and you will be let in.
*Be aware it will be hard/impossible to find parking near the river.*
Results can be found here.
The 3-mile race starts below the BU Bridge at the BU Boathouse and finishes upstream of the Eliot Bridge/CBC across from Christian Herter Park/Community Garden/Amphitheater.
