Started in 1965, the annual Head of the Charles Regatta takes place on the Charles River, which separates Boston from Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Some 11,000 rowers compete every year in a head race.
The race is a time-trial, they’ll be racing against the clock, and tens of thousands of spectators line the banks.
Rowing is a tough sport. You need stamina and a lot of upper body strength.
