 From our Regatta Director, Rebecca

   Welcome to the fifth 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.
