Crews Compete at Historic Head of the Charles Regatta

Harvard Crew teams competed in the historic Head of the Charles Regatta this past weekend.

The Preview

For the Harvard and Radcliffe crew teams, the biggest test of this year’s fall season will be the first test of the season — and it will take place in front of several thousand spectators on the Crimson’s home river.

The Preparation

For the Harvard crew teams and fans around the world, the most wonderful time of year is approaching: the highly-anticipated Head of the Charles Regatta. It takes place every year in Cambridge in mid-October, and all four Crimson teams, women’s and men’s lightweight and heavyweight, will be racing.

The Great Brit

Many dream to one day wear the home country’s flag on our backs during an international sports competition, but only a small minority of us ever get the opportunity. An even smaller minority ever get to walk away from these competitions victorious. But for junior Hope Cessford, a member of Radcliffe Heavyweight Crew from Durham, England, this dream became a reality this past summer at the U-23 World Rowing Championships in Florida.

The Captains

Led by senior captains Molly Lesser and Maria Boyle, Harvard women’s lightweight crew will look to open the season strong at the Head of the Charles Regatta this weekend. In advance of the regatta, Lesser and Boyle have worked hard to facilitate efficient practices and effective communication across the squad’s members.

The Hardware

At the Head of the Charles, twenty different trophies are up for grabs. This weekend, everyone from high school racers to veteran scullers will vie for one of the regatta’s prestigious pieces of hardware. Each one showcases a different person, city, or sponsor that helped shape the Head of the Charles into the premier two-day rowing spectacle that it is today.

Less is More
