The Head of The Genesee™ (a.k.a. HoG™) continues to grow, in both size and favor, forcing a 3rd day of racing for 2011. This year’s event dates are October 8th, 9th and 15th. The Head of the Genesee™ has always been a unique event. In prior years, Saturday’s schedule had been head races for Masters, Open and High School events. Sunday’s schedule has always had collegiate races featuring top crews from the northeast. Morning head races were followed by paired sprints in reverse order of finish from the morning head race. Combined times of the two events have determined the winners.
When asked about the new format of a 3rd race day, Regatta Director Tim Giarrusso stated that recent successes in increased satisfaction with the Head of the Genesee Regatta™ and a desire to grow the regatta have led to a change in the scheduling.
