The 43rd Head Of The Charles Regatta was indeed a spectacular weekend! The wonderfully sunny weather and remarkably calm winds made for ideal rowing conditions, as 15 new course records were established this year. There were some upsets--particularly in the Champion Singles Events--and a few pleasant surprises. Regatta venues, such as Row-A-Palooza and Reunion Village, were packed with rowers and fans from all over the world. It's estimated approximately 305,000 people lined the riverbanks of the Charles River along the legendary 3-mile racecourse.
Throughout the entire weekend, Moody Street Productions of Waltham MA was filming the entire Regatta-from rowers to reunions; from spectators to sponsors. Perhaps you'll see yourself in the recap show that's scheduled to air on Comcast SportsNet three times in the next 10 days:
