2021 Head of the Charles Regatta Recap

The water of the Charles River once again radiated with the sharp calls of the coxswains and glistened with the reflection of the oars with the return of the 56th Head of the Charles Regatta. This world-class competition brought in 2,231 boat entries from 619 different clubs across the globe to compete in 69 different events. Despite being a little over two years since the last time the regatta was held, the restoration of the annual race provided for a busy Harvard Square and thousands of spectators on the banks of the Charles.
