The Head Of The Charles Regatta (HOCR) is a Boston area tradition that dates back to 1965 and has evolved into the world’s largest rowing competition that spans two days, drawing more than 11,000 athletes and 400,000 spectators. With the warmer weather from earlier this week all but gone, sadly none of the rowers will likely be shirtless like this guy. You’ll want to bundle up when you go out to cheer on the athletes who came to compete.
The organizers have created a great website that includes more information about the races, maps and FAQs. You can learn more by visiting the official HOCR website, www.hocr.org.
