From our Regatta Director, Alan
Welcome to the fourth annual Head of the Chick Regatta, hosted by Williamsburg Boat Club.
The Head of the Chick is held at the Chickahominy Riverfront Park in Williamsburg, Virginia, one of North America's most popular vacation destinations. The Chickahominy is a wide river and the course is buoyed and uncomplicated, allowing for a wonderful rowing experience for all ages and stages of rowers.
There is great camping on site. Chickahominy Riverfront Park features over 120 campsites, including campsites that accommodate large groups. Several campsites have scenic views of the Chickahominy River and Gordon Creek and some campsites have access to water. Campsites include everything from basic tent sites to full hookup sites for RV’s. There are no cabins available. Campers have access to 2 bathhouses with a slop sink at each bathhouse. There is a limit of 6 people (up to 4 adults) per site and no more than 2 tents. Campsites may be reserved 12 months in advance and on a monthly basis. Fees are based on residency; view our Park Fees for more information. Reservations may be made by calling 757-258-5020 or by walk-in. Payment is due when the reservation is made.
