Formerly known as Head Of The Hog. A “head race” is rowing parlance for a distance race, usually at least 4 km long (our championship course is 2 km long), so this race will use the entirety of Cooper Creek Lake.
Traffic and water restrictions will be place Nov. 20-21 for the Head of the 941 Regatta:
STREET CLOSURE: World Championship Drive (along the west shore) will be closed from the playground entrance to Athletes Drive.
WATER ACCESS: South boat ramp will be closed. Cooper Creek Lake will also be closed.
PARKING: Parking on the island will be pre-purchase only; parking at the park’s south end (near the starting pavilion) will be free. The playground parking lot will be closed.
