The Head of the Charles Regatta, or HOCR, is the premier event on any rower’s schedule, and why not, as it is the largest 2-day regatta in the world with upwards of 11,000 athletes participating.
Coach Seaton Brown ’09 spoke excitedly about his men’s varsity 4 team that qualified for this year’s race, “There’s truly nothing like going to the Head of the Charles and seeing the incredible passion that so many people have for this sport. People come from around the world to participate in what is actually a pretty challenging course, navigating five bridges, 90 degree turns, and rowing against the current. This year, we were met with a strong headwind too, gusting around 15 knots.”
