Head of the Des Moines

  • Hosted By: Des Moines Rowing Club
  • USRowing Registered (Self-Insured regatta)

The Des Moines Rowing Club invites you to join us in Des Moines for the 2013 Head of the Des Moines Regatta. Saturday, September 28, is the day and this year marks the 30th anniversary of the Head of the Des Moines, one of the oldest continuous regattas in the Midwest.
Our event is an exciting 3-mile race upstream, with efficient launching and docking.
As in the past, we’ll be awarding gold and silver medals to the top two finishers in each event and traveling trophies for selected races and categories. We’ll also award bronze medals for races with 10 or more boats. Our medals are custom designed, as are our T-shirts, posters, and programs.
We’ll again be offering free breakfast food items at the beginning of the day for all athletes and coaches, plus our Junior program will be offering lunch on site over the noon hour as a fundraiser.
We are a USRA-sanctioned event with USRowing officials.
