The Thomas Eakins Head of the Schuylkill Regatta is rowed over a two and
three-quarter mile course on the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. The regatta attracts rowers from all over North America and
has become one of the premier fall regattas in the nation, regarded by
rowers as the climax of their fall racing season. The course twists and
bends its way through some of Americas most beautiful and historic
parkland during the peak of the fall foliage. The regatta is hosted by The
University Barge Club, No. 7 Boathouse Row, Philadelphia. The club
welcomes all competitors, coaches, friends and families to an exciting day
