First Coast Head Race

- 2017 Registered Regatta
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2017
3 BRIDGES, 2 RIVERS, 1 HECKUVA RACE!
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 4.8 kilometer course is a excellent experience as close as it gets to 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.
The race schedule normally allows for doubling. Sign up for a sculling event, then sweep your way down the course in fours and eights.
Dolphins and Florida birds such as ospreys, bald eagles, herons and egrets are also common sights along the beautiful natural waterway, and there is good spectating from the shore near the launch docks, right on the exciting University/Cesery turn.
Come and race with us!
