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. 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.]

There was a great field of 186 entrants (4 more than last year) in 24 categories. The weather was perfect. See the start order and grid. (Also see our 2013 Media Alert and 2013 poster.)

For 2014, if anyone is looking for crew members, or a crew to row in, please use our Facebook page to make contact with the community. You can email webmaster@hawthornrowingclub.com and we'll put it there for you. We'll also put it on our Special Messages page.
