Dear UW alumni and friends,

Head of the CharlesCome watch the 2012 National Champion Husky men kick-off their season at the world's largest rowing regatta, the Head of the Charles, on Sunday, October 21st. This year, the Husky men's eight will be looking to return to the top of the podium in the Championship Eight event!

Now in its 48th year, the Head of the Charles will feature 9,000 rowers competing against each other and the clock over a three mile course that winds its way up the Charles River through Boston and Cambridge. Come join this great New England event, cheer on the Huskies, meet the teams and the coaches and say hello to fellow Husky alumni gathered from around the country.

Schedule of Events:

10–12 p.m. Relax along the banks of the Charles River or in the Husky Hospitality Tent as the first events of the day go by.

2:48 p.m. Watch the Huskies race the top crews of the regatta in the Men's Championship Eight event.

The Husky Hospitality tent is located on the Boston side of the river upstream of the Eliot Bridge and will be marked by our white oar blades and a UW flag.  It is not part of the Reunion Village; directions are available online.
