Every year the Cleveland Rowing Foundation hosts a major regatta (the Head of the Cuyahoga - HOTC) the third Saturday of September, open to high school, collegiate and adult competition from around the country in both sweep and sculling events. The Cuyahoga River provides a unique opportunity for rowers to navigate the challenging turns of our crooked river on the two and one-half mile course. This racing distance, called a "head race," is the standard race format for regattas around the country in the Fall.
With its inaugural year in 1996, the initial HOTC was named a Cleveland Bicentennial event and attracted over 250 competitors. With continued success and the support of many volunteers and increased sponsorship, the Head of the Cuyahoga has gained the support of several local businesses as well as the United States Coast Guard. This regatta attracts numerous rowing clubs and programs from across the U.S., and it grows every year.
