Head of the Dog

  • Hosted By Portland Boat Club
  • 2017 Registered Regatta

Welcome to the Head of the Dog 2017.  Hosted by Portland Boat Club on the beautiful Multnomah Channel, the Head of the Dog is a three mile head race, a costume competition, and a fun picnic — all rolled into one.   We'll run two separate start waves, one for singles only, and a second for doubles, quads, and fours (schedule below) to minimize wait time on the water. Boats will launch from Portland Boat Club and row to the start. Spectators will have premium viewing of the finish line from the boathouse. Costumes are an annual tradition for this event; although optional they are highly encouraged! Food and awards round out the festivities after the race.
