Unsure what ‘Heads’ and ‘Regattas’ are?
The calendar of competitive rowing events includes Heads and Regatta seasons:
Head Races - are time trials whereby competitiors are set off one by one and the result is timed to work out your result. Head races are usually river races over longer distances and run during the winter months which is Head Season (September - April).
Regattas - are run in the Summer months. They are the traditional side by side races where the first one across the line wins. Regattas are usually shorter distances (up to 2,000 meters) during Regatta Season (April - September).
