2013 Charlie Butt Annual Scullers Head of the Potomac

Congratulations and thanks to the many athletes who came from far and wide to compete at the 2013 Charlie Butt Annual Scullers Head of the Potomac (SHOP)!

On Sunday, September 29, 2013, race fans and casual onlookers got a glimpse of novice, junior, collegiate, elite and master category athletes giving their all down the Potomac on one of the most beautiful days in the regatta’s 33-year history.

We look forward to seeing you all next year!
