The Head of the Riverfront is a USRowing Registered Regatta. Every USRowing-sanctioned event is led by a jury of USRowing-trained and certified officials, and registration with USRowing designates the regatta as a nationally recognized safe and fair event. Now in its 19th year, the Head of the Riverfront offers head-style competition on the Connecticut River for high school, collegiate and masters rowers.

2017 Race Registration
We accept all entries on a first-come, first-served basis until the registration deadline. Regular registration is open until midnight, September 21, 2017. Following the registration deadline, additional waitlisted entries will be evaluated based on our ability to accommodate them, and upon acceptance also be subject to the late entry fee. Registrants are encouraged to not wait until the last days before the deadline to enter.

2017 Tent Reservation
Teams must register and submit payment for tents through the regatta tent registration process: no team-provided tents will be allowed to set up. Teams may bring their grills, warming tables, etc, but these must only be operated in the designated space adjacent to, but not underneath, their tents assigned to each organization. Riverfront Recapture will obtain the necessary permits for these uses. Assignment of spaces will be made on a first-come, first serve basis. Deadline for tent registration is midnight, Sunday, September 17.
