Boston’s Lifeblood

Words DONNA MCLUSKIE // Photography Cedric Weber

When Bostonian D’Arcy MacMahon and his friends founded the Head Of The Charles River Regatta (HOCR) in 1965, Charles Attager was an integral part of their team.

Attager’s role was to address awkward questions. As such, he was left with many messages to answer because he was always somewhere about but never to be found.

Over the years, MacMahon’s event has become so enormous and well-established that it is now the world’s largest two-day rowing head race. Typically 10% of entries come from internationally competitive athletes. This year’s HOCR, scheduled for 22/23 October, has 63 rowers on the final draw who competed at the Rio Olympics, including 32 medal winners (4 bronze, 15 silver and 13 gold).
