• Head of the Charles Regatta Kickoff

    Miscellany  

    It’s that time of the year again, when not only the leaves fall from such great heights but world class rowers from all over the world descend upon the Charles River. It is on this penultimate October weekend that the Head of the Charles Regatta unfolds. And over 300,000 people will be there for every stroke. It’s a good time. I’m heading up to Cambridge tomorrow morning with Boast for the festivities. For those of you who will be in Boston, North River Outfitter is hosting a Head of the Charles Kickoff on Thursday night from 4-9p.m. I’ll be around to talk menswear, the upcoming release of the coffee table book Rowing Blazers (featuring my photographs of world class rowing athletes, including the Dartmouth portrait above), or the best place to shop vintage in Boston. Come by for the complimentary Whale’s Tale if nothing else.

    Having rowed myself, looking forward to the book.

    The HOTC is a world class event and is great fun for participants and sectors alike. The alumni reunions that take place along the banks of the Charles are particularly enjoyable. I for one will certainly be ther. However, unless you rowed in college, leave the rowing jacket at home.

    As a companion piece for people interested in the subject, check out A History of Collegiate Rowing in America by Daniella Garran.  Well-researched with historical photos.  Also the fantastic cover art is by my mother Deborah.

    @John—I’m not at liberty to say until the publishing deal is final.
