The Head Of The Charles Regatta (HOCR) is a Boston area tradition that dates back to 1965 and has evolved into a massive two-day rowing competition that draws more than 11,000 athletes and 400,000 spectators, making it the largest rowing event in the world.
The 2019 HOCR takes place this Saturday and Sunday. The forecast suggests plenty of sun with Sunday being the warmer of the two days and thankfully for the rowers, very little wind. If you’ve not been to this premiere rowing events, head down to the Charles River to cheer on these amazing athletes.
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.
