Regattas & Camps
The Occoquan Reservoir’s mostly predictable currents and flatness provide excellent water for head races; in addition, a fully buoyed sprint course is up from the beginning of the spring season through mid July.
OBC hosts two regattas each year:
- Occoquan Memorial Sprints (OMS) in July
- Head of the Occoquan (HOTO) in early November.
Members gather on Wednesday evenings (6:00pm generally) and Sunday mornings (7:15 in July – August; 7:30 September on) to row race pieces—sprint pieces in the summer, head pieces in the fall. These gatherings are informally coordinated rather than coached.
