8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We were pleased to welcome crews from nearly 60 clubs and schools to Hartford for this year’s regatta.
The Head of the Riverfront is be a US Rowing 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.

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.
