Over 1800 dedicated volunteers work together to ensure the success of The Head Of The Charles® Regatta.

With over 30 unique committees from which to choose, volunteers manage everything from river control to registration. Every year the HOCR office looks for motivated, enthusiastic volunteers to join our team.

The operational and logistical details of the Head Of The Charles Regatta are overseen by a ten-member volunteer Race Committee (including two Race Directors). The Race Committee meets year-round to manage over 30 committees in preparation for the next HOCR.
