Head of the Chickahominy

  • Hosted By: Williamsburg Boat Club
  • Cancelled

*****UPDATE OCTOBER 11/2020----

WBC will not be hosting the Head of the Chickahominy in 2020.  While we are having a modified fall season, the logistics required to make a safe event and general good prudence demand we skip this year's event.  We've been very proud of the growth of the event and the continual improvement of the experience for the teams we are fortunate to have come race with us.  Be on the lookout for a change in 2021 to a mid-October event date for this.  Also, if you are looking for a summer race geared towards masters but with events for all ages in the sport.  Look for our "Beak of the Chick" in early August.  Best wishes for your teams, rowers, and families as we work through this period of uncertainty.

Welcome to the Head of the Chick Regatta 2019, hosted by Williamsburg Boat Club.

The Head of the Chick is held at the Chickahominy Riverfront Park in Williamsburg, Virginia, one of North America's most popular vacation destinations. The Chickahominy is a wide river and the course is buoyed and uncomplicated, allowing for a wonderful rowing experience for all ages and stages of rowers.  We have dramatically increased the number, size, and quality of our buoys from previous years.  There will also be a warming tent.  We have also relocated the launch dock to be next to the recovery dock so there won't be a need to carry boats very far and to expedite timely launc/recovery.

If there are any race categories you'd like to enter but are not listed, please let us know.  The initial schedule will be posted by Wednesday November 6th.

Boat and Team trailers can be dropped off the night before or morning of the regatta.    

Middle school events are not separated by gender, feel free to enter as a boy/girl/or mixed lineup.  If we receive enough gender specific entries, we'll separate the events.
