Sunday Scenes at the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta

Kelly Drive and the river were taken over by rowers and spectators this past weekend. Falling a week after Head of the Charles (in Boston) Philadelphia holds their own big autumn regatta each year - The Head of the Schuylkill.

The College/University teams (local and non-local) race Saturday, high school teams race Sunday, with lots of masters’ rowers mixed in for fun! Below are photos showing some of what the Sunday scene looks like.

Many rowers like to take advantage of the race being on Halloween weekend by wearing costumes or funny hats…

Another Regatta Season is Upon Us...Navy Day 2015

With the summer being over, school back in session, and the leaves beginning to fall the rowers are taking to the river once again. Regatta season is back! Sure there are regattas over the summer but those are not quite the same as fall races which include all the area high schools and many east coast universities. This past weekend was the sort of the like the start of autumn with rowers - from high school through masters - competing in the Navy Day Regatta, on the Schuylkill river.

Take a look at my photo recap below!
