 In this episode we focus on the Head of the Ohio, PA 10/2-3; Secret City Head, TN 10/16-17; Head of the Charles, MA 10/22-24; Head of the Schuylkill, PA 10/30-31 (also virtual); Head of the Hooch, TN 11/6-7; Head of the South, GA 11/13. Full list and registration details at Regatta Central.

Join legendary coaches & athletes Jim Dietz and Mark Wilson for a lively discussion full of insight, good stories, and practical tips for the fall head racing season – from the venerable Head of the Charles to the Ohio, Schuylkill, Hooch, and Secret City; and probably a few more!

Dietz & Wilson are the co-founders of All-American Rowing Camp and have logged many perfect meters together and individually. Dietz has raced in 56 of the 57 Head of the Charles regattas, in addition to several Olympic roles as competitor and coach. The two met at the Coast Guard Academy where Wilson was a rower and Dietz a coach.

We recommend you don’t miss the livestreams – but if you must, you can always catch the replays on YouTube or your favorite podcast app. If you join the livestream, you can post questions in the discussion section and our guests can give you a response in real time, just sayin’!

Many thanks to our new sponsor, SYKES USA!
