Rowing Team to Compete at Head of the Charles This Weekend


The Bowdoin College rowing team will compete at the Head of the Charles in Boston this weekend, October 19-20. The largest two-day regatta in the world, the Head of the Charles is the pinnacle of the fall racing season and the Polar Bears will be looking to add to their growing collection of medals.

Bowdoin will have one boat competing in the Men’s Collegiate Fours (Saturday, 4 p.m.). The crew will look to continue its recent string of success as the squad has earned medals in each of the last two years, including a fifth-place finish last year.

The Polar Bears will also have a boat in the Women’s Collegiate Fours (Saturday, 4:14 p.m.). Bowdoin’s first varsity women will look to defend their gold-medal performance of 2012 and continue their undefeated season.

Bowdoin will also compete for the first time in the Men’s Lightweight Fours (Sunday, 4:15 p.m.), an event filled with international talent. Additionally, two alumni boats will compete in the Club Fours events on Saturday.
