Steerhead Regatta

  • Hosted By: Fort Worth Rowing Club

The 2023 Steerhead Regatta will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2023 at the Fort Worth Rowing Club's boathouse just east of downtown Fort Worth (Interstate 30 and Beach Street). Registration for SteerHead is open Wednesday, August 2nd and closes Sunday, September 17th! 

The head race will have a running start and is approximately 3,000 meters. 

  • Race-day registration will begin at 6:30 AM.
  • Safety meeting at 7:00 AM.
  • The first event will begin at 8:00 AM Sunday morning. We anticipate ending by 1:30 PM, if not sooner.
  • Race order/line-ups will not be finalized until the entry deadline. We want to know all the entries for an event and then will schedule accordingly. The intent is to allow rowers to participate in as many events as possible. The 1x races will be first and we will schedule the other races according to the entries for each event.

Fees are:  

  • 1x - $40.00
  • 2x - $55.00
  • 4x - $75.00
  • 8+ - $100.00
