Head of the Riverfront

We are sorry to confirm what now seems to be the inevitable decision – the 2020 Head of the Riverfront, originally scheduled for October 4, will not be held. In this challenging year, the health and well-being of our athletes, coaches, referees, spectators and volunteers remains our highest priority.

While we treasure welcoming you all to the Connecticut River each October, after careful consideration of the USRA, Connecticut, federal and local guidance and regulations around the coronavirus it is clear we have no choice but to cancel the regatta. We look forward to hosting the Head of the Riverfront in 2021.
