Stockton Rowing has just been accepted into the Women’s Collegiate Eights at the prestigious 2019 Head of the Charles Regatta which takes place Oct. 19-20 in Boston. Stockton’s Women’s 8+ will row on Sunday, Oct. 20.

Each year, the Regatta receives far more applications to participate than they can accept. However, Stockton Rowing’s success last year along with the influence of John Bancheri, head rowing coach, has secured the Ospreys a spot in this year’s competition. 

Considered the world’s largest two-day regatta, the HOCR comprises more than 11,000 athletes and tens of thousands of spectators.
