Competitors in the 2015 Thomas Eakins Head of the Schuylkill Regatta® are continuing a tradition of exceptional fall racing that began more than four decades ago. While the expansive scope of the two-day Regatta today bears little resemblance to its 1971 roots, the spirit of the Regatta endures: a welcoming fall race for rowers of all ages and skill levels. An estimated 180 competitors participated in the first race. This year, 7,000+ athletes are expected to cross the finish line of the 2.5-mile scenic course.
