Gainesville Area Rowing proudly hosts the 2019 Gator Head Regatta, Gainesville Florida’s ONLY Rowing Regatta Competition.
Since 1996 Gainesville has hosted this one day rowing regatta which brings over 800 participants and spectators together to see who will be the next crew to win the Gator Head Trophy. The Gator Head Regatta brings crews throughout the state of Florida with race entries that include Middle Schools, High Schools and Adult/Master rowers. The race is run over a 5K stretch as rowers experience Gainesville’s tough terrain making this regatta a challenging fun competition.
GAR would like to thank Gainesville Fire & Rescue, Alachua Sheriff’s Office and Explorers, Santa Fe College EMS Program and all the volunteers who help make this regatta a success!
