We were so pleased to host another successful Head of the Riverfront in 2023, with nearly 800 entries from 76 clubs and schools, and look forward to continuing to grow in 2024. Congratulations to all of our competitors in the 2023 Head of the Riverfront for an excellent day of racing. We wish to thank the US Rowing officials, the hundreds of volunteers, and our support from public safety organizations for helping to ensure a fair and safe day of competitive rowing.
