Steerhead Regatta

  • Hosted By Fort Worth Rowing Club

The 2012 Steerhead Regatta will be held on September 15, 2012 at the Fort Worth Rowing Club's boathouse just east of downtown Fort Worth (Interstate 30 and Beach Street).  FWRC has ALL NEW AWARDS this year... Pint glasses with the new Steerhead logo emblazoned in gold, silver and bronze!

The head race will have a running start and is approximately 3,000 meters. 

  • Race-day registration will begin at 6:30 AM.
  • Safety meeting at 7:30 AM.
  • The first event will begin at 8:30 AM Saturday morning. We anticipate ending by 2:30PM, if not sooner.

Fees are:  $15 for one race; $35 for unlimited racing (per person).

Light snacks (fruit, yogurt, granola bars, sandwiches, etc.) will be provided to the competitors. FWRC will have containers of water and Gatorade on site; however, all attendees should bring their own food & refreshments. We will have a large canopy with tables and chairs on site, near the boathouse. Racers cannot be seen from this area.

There is no shade at the venue. We strongly advise all visitors to bring canopies and umbrellas for shade.

Boats will launch every hour and row upstream to the starting line area. (PLAN B: If we have an abundance of race participants in that hour, rowers will go upstream approximately 1500 meters from the launch site to a holding area. Events will be called to the start line when the next race is ready to gather. The boats in the holding area will row the remaining 1500 meters to the start line.) There will be no 2-way traffic during any race.
