It is with profound disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of the 2021 Head of the Christina Regatta. We have been unable to secure enough certified USRowing officials to safely put on the event and regretfully must call it off.
The nature of our race, with the winding path of the river and strong tidal current is such that we would not feel comfortable if there were any blind spots along the race course, insufficient supervision on the dock, and at the start and finish line, and as such we have determined it cannot go on. Please be assured that this has been done out of the utmost concern for the safety and fairness of racing for all involved.
We are working with RegattaCentral to allow for a 95% refund of all entry fees for this year. Additionally, WYRA will provide a voucher for an additional 25% off of next year’s edition for all 2021 entrants. We genuinely hope that you will consider the Head of the Christina again in 2022 to open your fall seasons. We were hopeful to be able to bring you all a long-awaited return to head racing this weekend but unfortunately it seems it wasn’t meant to be this year.
