Welcome to the official Head of the Yarra - Australia's Rowing Classic event. The Head of the Yarra, which is conducted by the Hawthorn Rowing Club, is held annually on the last Saturday of November.
The 2014 regatta will be held on Saturday the 29th of November. Entries closed on the 9th of November, and we have over 220 entries, making the 2014 regatta the largest ever, and by far the biggest single rowing event in Australia. The first crews start at 11:00am. View our 2014 HotY Media Alert.
The second newsletter for 2014 is now available [Download]. The first newsletter is still available [Download]. View our YouTube video of scenes from the 2013 regatta. [There is a state election that day, and we recommend Victorian rowers cast a pre-poll vote to keep the day free for the HOTY.]
