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. Each year, beginning in 1998, we host a head style regatta offering competition on the Connecticut River for high school, collegiate, and masters rowers. In 2013, a record-breaking number of rowers from six states competed in Riverfront Recapture’s Annual Head of the Riverfront Regatta on the Connecticut River.


With spectators from many states in the Northeastern US, the Regatta is a great way to promote your business and support these athletes.
