A calm day on the Charles River set the stage for the largest two-day regatta in the world--the Head of the Charles.
The Harvard and Radcliffe crew teams fielded a total of 12 boats in the heavyweight, lightweight, youth and club races.
And while the varsity crews failed to place higher than ninth against a strong field, the races were a successful tune-up for the rest of the fall season.
Harvard crossed the finish line at 15:47.62, good for 13th place. The boat finished behind college rivals Princeton and Yale, who finished sixth and eighth respectively. Brown finished fourth.
"It was okay," captain Neil W. Holzapfel '00 said after the race, "[but] it wasn't great."
It was difficult for the Crimson to know exactly how it was doing because the race was staggered.
