**Coaches and Coxswains Meeting will take place at 7 am**

This is the premier rowing event on the Hudson River in Albany, bringing together hundreds of competitors from high schools, colleges, and clubs from the Capital Region as well as other areas of New York and surrounding states.

This year marks the 34th anniversary for the Head of the Hudson Regatta, with viewing possible at many points along the course. The bike path runs the entire length of the course. Competing rowers begin at a start point north of the I-90 Bridge, upstream of the Albany Rowing Center boathouse on the Hudson River and, one after the other, race south to finish at the Riverfront Amphitheatre at Jennings Landing. The fastest time in each race event determines the winner. An All-Points Trophy is awarded at the end of the regatta to the team with the most points overall, based on placement in each race event.

The regatta consists of over thirty different race events, in which adults, juniors, college and adaptive rowers, both novice and experienced, compete. It is an excellent early fall regatta for rowers of all ages and experience levels.  Competition will be held in all boat types: Singles, Doubles, Pairs, Quads, Fours and Eights. Spectators will be able to watch the excitement of both sculling and sweeping races.
