Our sincere thanks to competitors, coaches, officials, sponsors and the City of Philadelphia for your support of the 2014 Head of the Schuylkill Regatta.

GOLD_CUP_SIDEBARA special thanks and our hats off to the Gold Cup Foundation for partnering with us this year and bringing to Philadelphia the top male and female scullers in the world.

Thanks to your volunteers, and especially the athletes, for their participation.


Our Heartfelt Thanks

  • We tip our blades, and offer our heartfelt thanks, to the officials and referees who traveled to Philadelphia and spent two days on the water to ensure that the regatta was fair, safe and competitive.
  • As always, our volunteer corps numbering more than 330 (!) were the stars this weekend. The Head of the Schuylkill Regatta could not happen without them.
  • We are fortunate to have extraordinary sponsors. Many spent the weekend with us on the banks of the Schuylkill showing their support, and enthusiasm for the event.
  • Our diverse group of vendors support the regatta off the water. Our exclusive food vendor, Winnie’s Le Bus made sure everyone had smokin’ good comfort food for the weekend. Thank you!

They are all based on length of experience (Frosh/Novice) and/or level of skill (Varsity and JV), not age of athlete. Furthermore, you only have to enter one Varsity boat in order to qualify to enter a boat in the corresponding JV event. The only restriction is that the Varsity boat must be comprised of your presumed fastest combo. Click or Tap for  Schedule of Events | Rules
