Des Moines Rowing Club

the challenge
Since 1983, the Des Moines Rowing Club has hosted the Head of the Des Moines Regatta on the Des Moines River. One of the oldest and biggest regattas in the Midwest, this three-mile race upstream usually attracts over 30 collegiate or club crews with over 500 competitors from all over the region. On the last Saturday of September, competitors pick from over 50 races to row from the Botanical Center to Prospect Park. This event has been named to be a national standard Regatta by the United States Rowing Association’s Judge Referee Corps.

Local artists, designers and firms over the years have volunteered time and talent to promote the unique this sport and competition – enriching the history of the event with one-of-a-kind designs.
