There’s a lot less heat and the murmur of a snap in the air on this mid September day. On deck today are the Head of the Cuyahoga and the Tail of the Fox. CRI renamed the Rumble in the River to Fall Classic Regatta even though we already knew it was a classic. And there’s a challenge in Milwaukee hosting gold medal Olympians plus a few traditions to follow in Britain. Needless to say, a perfect day for rowing wherever you may be!
The 21st Annual Head of the Cuyahoga will be held today hosted by Cleveland Rowing Association.There will be 439 entries from 51 clubs.
Community Rowing Inc. will host 241 entries from 40 clubs to the Fall Classic Regatta on the Charles in Boston today. You may remember this regatta as “The Rumble on the River.” The Fall Classic will offer the same 3 mile course followed by food trucks, beer tastings and free music festival aferwards at the Harry Parker Boathouse. Sounds like a classic to me.
