While the Head of the Charles Regatta in October (pictured above) marks the highlight of the fall crew season, the Foot of the Charles Regatta on Nov. 13 was the fall finale for all four Harvard rowing teams.

Men's and women's crew teams from around the world were treated to clear skies and blue waters during Saturday and Sunday's races. Standout Harvard performances include the Radcliffe Lightweight team finishing in third place in the women's Lightweight Eights race.


2021 Head of the Charles Regatta Recap

The water of the Charles River once again radiated with the sharp calls of the coxswains and glistened with the reflection of the oars with the return of the 56th Head of the Charles Regatta. This world-class competition brought in 2,231 boat entries from 619 different clubs across the globe to compete in 69 different events. Despite being a little over two years since the last time the regatta was held, the restoration of the annual race provided for a busy Harvard Square and thousands of spectators on the banks of the Charles.


Fearsome Foursome

The Radcliffe women’s championship four (Sarah Averill, Morgan Blind, Catherine Van Stone, and Bridget Galloway) raced to a sixth-place finish under the guidance of coxswain Sophie Haugen. Princeton took first in the event.


Near and Far

College programs from across the country came to HOCR, some from great distances, others from right next door, such as the Boston University boat in the foreground.


Four to the Finish

Matthew Shum, Emmett de Kanter, Westby Caspersen, and Lars Caspersen, led by coxswain Taybah Crorie, compete in the men’s club fours, one of three Harvard boats in the event.

After being canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Head of the Charles Regatta returned in 2021, bringing thousands of rowers and spectators to the water and banks of the Charles River.


With the Olympics Around the Corner, Harvard and Radcliffe Rowers Prepare to Make Their Mark

Dean is the only enrolled Crimson rower headed to the Olympics, but not the only Harvard affiliate; alumni Andrew Reed, Alexander Richards ’18, Conor Harrity ’18, Liam Corrigan ’19, and Olivia Coffey ’11 from the Radcliffe team are competing for America. Sam Hardy ’18 and Josh Hicks ’13 are competing for Australia, and Jüri-Mikk Udam ’17 is rowing for Estonia.


Going for Gold

While multiple Harvard alums will be rowing in Tokyo, Dean (pictured in the foreground in the stroke position) is the only actively enrolled Crimson rower to suit up in Japan. After the uncertainty of a year's postponement, Dean and others will finally compete this week.


Winding Up

First-year water polo standout Dany Zapata Rincon, pictured above winding up a shot, has tried to find the silver linings that come from training and studying Down Under, halfway across the world.


Stars, Stripes, and Oars

Clark Dean, pictured in the foreground, helped power these four Americans to a top-eight finish at the 2019 World Championships. The Harvard rower had hoped to earn a chance to replicate this international success at the 2020 Olympics, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put his training schedule in an uncertain place.


Clark Dean’s Olympic Training Put on Pause

Needless to say, Dean’s training schedule has completely changed since the Olympics were officially postponed. While he was a couple of short months away from peaking, he now has to reverse his training schedule and essentially begin his off-season.


Head of the Charles Brings Crowds to Harvard Square Businesses

The event is the world’s largest two-day regatta and the third-most attended event in New England annually, and often is one of the Square’s most lucrative weekends of the year, according to local business owners.
