The Cleveland Rowing Foundation’s 26th Annual Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta (HOTC) will be held on Saturday, September 17th, 2022.
What started as a small, local regatta has grown into one of the country’s top ten largest, single-day head races. The HOTC kicks off the Head Race season with a competitive racecourse of complex turns and scenic views of Cleveland.
Head of Cuyahoga Regatta
In 1989, WRRA hosted the very first Cleveland Sprints Regatta inside the breakwall on Lake Erie. In 1996, the Cleveland Sprints Regatta was moved from Lake Erie to the Cuyahoga River, and the distance was changed from a 2,000 meter sprint to a 2.5 mile head race, marking the beginning of what is known today as the Head of the Cuyahoga Regatta. The initial head race, which was included as a Cleveland Bicentennial event, involved over 250 rowers and 3,000 spectators. The race has continued to grow and is currently one of the top ten largest single-day regattas in the country.
