UVRF at the Head of the Charles


On Saturday, 17 October, 32 members of UVRF, made up of 17 scullers, a women's four, and the men's sweep team coached by Chuck Nagle, traveled to Boston to race in the 51st Head of the Charles Regatta.

11,000 athletes competed in 2,222 entries representing 776 rowing clubs while 400,000 spectators lined the banks of the Charles River to watch the best racing of the fall season. The course is 4800 meters long and has multiple bridges and turns. The weather was sunny and cold with temps in the high forties and a 20-knot headwind at the start. After the BU Bridge (300 meters in), the whitecaps were gone and the wind lessened to 10 knots.

A special 'thank you' to Dartmouth College Crew for transporting the UVRF oars and shells to the racecourse and back to the boathouse.
