Watch rowing teams compete from all over the country and take the sights of autumn along the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge.Regatta includes races for youths, veterans and lightweights. Similar in tradition to races held in England, 'Head' races, a class of regattas, are generally three miles long.

Winners of each race receive the honorary title of 'Head of the River' or, in this case, 'Head Of The Charles.'
