Head of the Riverfront

  • Hosted By: Riverfront Recapture, Inc.
  • USRowing Sanctioned Regatta

Riverfront Recapture is a private, non-profit organization leading the effort to reconnect metropolitan Hartford with the Connecticut River by providing access to four Riverfront parks in Hartford and East Hartford, Connecticut. Each year, beginning in 1998, we host a head style regatta offering competition on the Connecticut River for high school, collegiate, and masters rowers. 

We'd like to express our appreciation the hundreds of volunteers, our officials, and our partners from public safety for another terrific day of safe, fair and fun competition. The Head of the Riverfront welcomed crews who are with us each year, some we haven't seen in a while and were delighted to see return, and crews new to our regatta -- it was the largest Head of the Riverfront yet, and we look forward to seeing you all in 2024.
