Join us in celebrating 50 years of the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta
The 2020 Head of the Schuylkill Regatta is “virtually yours” (or anybody’s for that matter!) as you can compete from wherever you are, on your favorite rowing machine or body of water. Join us in celebrating our 50th anniversary by connecting with community and moving the words “we are all in this together” into action.
There will be separate events for the self-submittal of times on erg and water during October 18th-25th, and live racing on October 24th.
