THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE

48TH HEAD OF THE SCHUYLKILL REGATTA.

SAVE THE DATES: OCTOBER 26 & 27, 2019

America’s Favorite Regatta


The 2018 Head of the Schuylkill Regatta will continue a tradition of exceptional fall racing that began forty-eight years ago in the home of American rowing. While the expansive scope of the two-day Regatta today bears little resemblance to its 1970 roots, the spirit of the Regatta endures: a fall race showcasing high-caliber crews as well as those new to the sport.

  Tens of thousands of visitors line the 2.5 mile course in beautiful Fairmount Park to cheer competitors, enjoy the activity of the Three Angels Statues Festival Area, and take in the history and view of Boathouse Row. Building upon the Regatta’s reputation as one of the nation’s premiere events, in 2016 Rowing Newsbranded the HOSR as “the best head race in the world. Period.”  Be part of the legendary tradition of Philadelphia rowing and the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta.
