Rowers from the College of William and Mary participated on Saturday.
It was the 48th edition of the Head of the Charles Regatta.
The Drexel Rowing Alumni wore bow ties and went shirtless.
There were also some curious contraptions floating on the Charles.
Spectators lined the banks of the Charles River along Memorial Drive in Cambridge.
People also watched the races from the bridges in the area.
Races will take place Saturday and Sunday.
