The 36th annual Charlie Butt Scullers’ Head of the Potomac Regatta will take place on Sunday, September 25, and registration is now open here!

Please mark your calendars and be on the lookout for an email asking for volunteer support. We could not run the regatta without the assistance of so many club members (and family members and friends), and we hope we can count on your support again this year.

Further details will be posted on the Ronin site and on the SHOP page on the PBC site.

If you have any questions, please contact me or any of the excellent SHOP committee members: Peter Clements, Eric Edmonds, Brett Freeman, Meli Mathis, Will Packard, Ken Swain, and Lena Wang.
