As Labor Day passes, boathouses start to come alive again with the return of athletes, the introduction of new rowers, and the start of a new training season. Coaches are busy preparing workouts and figuring out line-ups for fall racing. While the season may just be kicking off, crews are already preparing for the “end” of it: The 49th Annual Head Of The Charles Regatta®.
As crews anxiously await their entry confirmations, Concept2 CTS is busy preparing for the Rowing & Fitness Expo. We will be, once again, near the finish line and along the river, next door to our friends from Hudson Boat Works. Come visit us here to try out equipment, discuss oar choices for your crew, or grab a Vermont apple—we will have free snacks from Champlain Orchards to keep you nourished for the busy weekend! There will be other surprises in the booth as well, so come by and meet the Concept2 CTS crew!
The Expo is free and open to spectators and friends. We encourage you to stop by, even if you’ve never touched an oar! The Head Of The Charles is an exciting event, and we’ll have plenty of staff on hand to answer any questions you may have about choosing equipment, technique, training or racing. For competitors, we will also have a warm-up tent full of indoor rowers located near the boat trailers in the Finish Area Launch Site (FALS). Our Regatta Service trailer will be on site to help with your competitive oar needs, with priority being given to oars being used for competition that weekend. Please call us in advance at 877.887.8014 if you have a specific issue you need help with and would like to let us know you’re coming. The Regatta Service trailer will be parked at the Rowing & Fitness Expo and accepting oars starting on Thursday, October 17, 2013.
We’re offering special discounts on equipment used over the race weekend. Interested in a set of oars, an indoor rower, or the SkiErg? Find details and pricing here. Quantities are limited, so call early for the best selection.
See you in Boston!
