Head of the Charles 2011

19.10.2011 BY: National Rowing Foundation

It’s that time of year again, finally! It’s the only rowing event in the US, where thousands of people come to watch. Plus, this year is especially exciting because we missed last year due to Worlds being so late. Unfortunately, none of the women are racing like we had originally hoped but at least we get to go. Although I would much rather race, this will be my first year as a spectator and I can’t wait to see all the collisions… I mean, fasboats. And, the weather is supposed to be beautiful, much different than our last Charles experience complete with snow and sleet back in 2009.

There are a few exciting things coming up for the NRF. The annual National Team Alumni Reception and Reunion is this Saturday in Boston, so come stop by between 4 and 6:30 pm. Then, on November 30 the NRF is co-hosting the Golden Oar Awards (for the first time!) with USRowing. You can find more information about the event here: http://www.usrowing.org/Events/GoldenOarsDinner.aspx.

Hope to see you there and thanks for all your support, you make our journey possible day in and day out!
