Oct. 18, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's rowing team travels to Boston, Mass., this weekend for the 39th Annual Head of the Charles Regatta on the Charles River.
The Colonials will once again compete in the premier race of the two-day event, the Men's Championship Eights, on Sunday at approximately 2:54 p.m.
GW will also enter a boat in the Championship Fours event, which is scheduled to launch on Sunday at 2:31 p.m.
2013 marks the fifth year straight year that the men's rowing program has entered a boat in the prestigious two-day event.
The Head of the Charles was founded in 1965 and has evolved into the largest two-day rowing event in the world. This year's event features more than 9,500 athletes from 23 countries with 2,000 crews competing in front of a crowd that routinely approaches 300,000 along the Charles River.
The George Washington Office of Alumni Relations, in conjunction with the GW Boston Alumni group, is hosting an alumni gathering within "Reunion Village" during the two-day event. For more information and registration details, visit the GW Alumni Online Community. (link)
