“A head race is a time-trial competition in the sport of rowing, in which rowers race against the clock. The crew or rower completing the course in the shortest time in their age, ability and boat-class category is deemed the winner. The Head of the Pend Oreille will be a 5K distance open to all classes of rowers. Rowers not only will have a great venue to row, they will be bringing the rowing experience to a new audience.
A special “meet the rowers” barbeque will be held at the Priest River Yacht Club Friday September 27th. Regatta participants will be invited to join a pre-Regatta “row-by".
