3 BRIDGES, 2 RIVERS, 1 HECKUVA RACE!
Tired of rowing in circles?
Experience the First Coast Head Race, the oldest head race in Florida. This annual regatta is held in Jacksonville on the St. Johns and Arlington Rivers. The approximately 5 kilometer course is a mirror image of the Head of the Charles, providing great practice for that prestigious regatta. The course begins north of the Mathews Bridge, runs under the University and Cesery Bridges, and winds its way down protected waters, past residences and marshes. In addition to the bridges, there are several challenging turns and a short no passing zone.
Dolphins and Florida birds such as ospreys, bald eagles, herons and egrets are common sights along the beautiful natural waterway.
The race schedule normally allows for doubling. Sign up for a sculling event, then sweep your way down the course in fours and eights.
