ach year in the fall, the Albany Rowing Center hosts the Head of the Hudson Regatta. Typical of other "head" races that are held throughout the country in the fall, it is a race "against the clock." The Head of the Hudson is our premier event, bringing together hundreds of competitors from high schools, colleges, and clubs from the Capital District, other areas of New York, and surrounding states. The regatta consists of twenty different race events, in which adults, juniors and recreational rowers, both novice and experienced, may compete. The best finishing time in each race event determines the winner. Gold and silver medals are awarded to the first and second-place finishers in each race event, and special trophies are also awarded to winning teams of certain sponsored races. An All-Points Trophy is awarded at the end of the regatta to the team with the most points overall, based on placement in each race event.
