The Head Of The Charles® Regatta announced the following updates for the 2019 regatta, which takes place October 19-20, 2019. Direct all questions to the regatta via their Web site at www.hocr.org.
- The HOCR course committee is working to install a buoy-less electric course for Regatta weekend. Coxswains and scullers will collect a buzzer upon registration and will receive a small shock when a buoy is clipped or the hull crosses the buoy line. The buzzers will also be programmed to communicate with the surrounding hulls, and will shock the competitor to avoid collision.
- Crews unable to locate a rental boat will have the option to purchase a 3D printed shell at our Rowing & Fitness Expo.
- New at Reunion Village: IV Drip Spa. Designed for those who had one too many Sierra Nevadas, our new vendor will be available to rehydrate Alumni crews.
