Head of the Riverfront 2017 - Tent Registration
   
19th Annual Head of the Riverfront Regatta


The regatta is Sunday, October 1st.


The Head of the Riverfront is a USRowing Registered Regatta. Every USRowing-sanctioned event is led by a jury of USRowing-trained and certified officials, and registration with USRowing designates the regatta as a nationally recognized safe and fair event. Registration will open in August.

Riverfront Recapture is a private, non-profit organization leading the effort to reconnect metropolitan Hartford with the Connecticut River by providing access to four Riverfront parks in Hartford and East Hartford. Each year, beginning in 1998, we host a head style regatta offering competition on the Connecticut River for high school, collegiate, and masters rowers.

DEADLINE FOR TENT & GRILL REGISTRATION IS MIDNIGHT, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17.

TENTS & GRILLS: REGISTRATION PROCESS REQUIRED
Notice: The City of Hartford is more stringently enforcing regulations regarding the set up of tents, cooking grills, and the permitting and inspection process for such structures. As a result, to comply with the direction from the Fire Prevention Chief/Fire Marshal for the City of Hartford, only tents that are rented from and provided by the Riverfront Recapture and have been assured to meet the regulations may be used. Teams must register and submit payment for tents through the regatta tent registration process: no team-provided tents will be allowed to set up. Teams may bring their grills, warming tables, etc, but these must only be operated in the designated space adjacent to, but not underneath, their tents assigned to each organization. Riverfront Recapture will obtain the necessary permits for these uses. Assignment of spaces will be made on a first-come, first serve basis.

IMPORTANT POINTS:
1. you may reserve space, but elect to not rent a tent. However, if you do so, you may NOT setup your own tent. Only tents rented through Riverfront Recapture will be permitted for set up. Your reserved space and tent will be assigned by Riverfront Recapture.
2. If you rent tents, you must also reserve adequate spaces for their set up. Please complete your entire registration in a single form the ensure adjacent spaces.
3. Grills will not provided. Each grill you bring must be registered and accounted for, and set up in the area designated adjacent to, but not underneath, the tents assigned to each organization. Regulations pertaining to the distance between grills or cooking and tents will be strictly enforced by the City of Hartford.
4. If you neither reserve space nor wish to have a tent or a grill, there are open areas where chairs may be set up. There are also a limited number of park picnic tables. As a reminder, no privately-owned tents may be set up.

To make the "hospitality" aspect of our regatta as simple as possible encourage you to ask for clarification if necessary and to also register by the deadline (which, due to our rental agreement with the tent vendor is earlier than the deadline for event entries). Please review the information below regarding directions and access to the park.

UTILITY TRAILERS, "Hospitality" trailers, and vans with crew tents etc: All utility trailers are encouraged to park and unload at Riverside Park Saturday afternoon from noon-6:00PM. All utility trailers must expect to unload their contents and remove the trailer and the vehicle towing it, and then will be directed to the special parking area designated for them within the park. Crews should not assume they would have easy access to these vehicles nor plan to bring them back into the park until the completion of the regatta on Sunday afternoon. There is overnight security in the park.

All remaining utility trailers must be in the park before 7:00AM on Sunday. There will be a designated drop off area for utility trailers and other vehicles with hospitality supplies - this is only short term parking and will be monitored to ensure a rapid unloading and return to the parking. The park will open at 5:00AM.

Passenger vehicles, team vans or buses, or any vehicle other than boat trailers and tow vehicle WILL NOT be permitted into Riverside Park at any time on Sunday of the event. All vehicles will be directed to designated parking areas, which are accessible to the race venues by a walkway and paths. Directions to designated spectator and team parking areas will be published prior to the event.

NOTE: the finish line viewing area is approximately a 15 minute walk from Riverside park, easily accessible by way of the Riverwalk paved pathways leading to the Mortensen Riverfront Plaza. Spectators wishing to park nearer to the finish line, rather than near the launch and return area, should review the directions at http://riverfront.org/parks/mortensen-riverfront-plaza. No hospitality/team tents may be set up at the finish line plaza-this area is only for viewing the racing.

Overnight Security: While the Regatta provides security for the Riverside Park (boathouse) launch site for the night of Saturday prior to the Sunday regatta, this in no way guarantees the safety of the competitor's equipment.
