Thank you to all the teams, athletes, spectators and volunteers who participated in the 2017 Head of the Riverfront. Spectacular weather and excellent racing defined the day, and we welcomed both crews who race with us each year in Hartford and many teams who joined us for the first time in 2017. Congratulations to all the winning competitors.

We wish to thank the US Rowing officials, the many volunteers, and our support from public safety organizations for helping to ensure a fair, safe day of competitive racing. We could not do it without you. 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.

The 20th annual Head of the Riverfront will be held Sunday, September 30, 2018.
