The Georgia Tech Crew and Saint Andrew Rowing Club are
delighted to welcome you to the 29th Annual John Hunter Regatta at
the Lake Lanier Olympic Rowing Center.
The Hunter is
open to all college, scholastic, and youth rowing teams. Racing will be at the
1996 Olympic Games rowing venue. The
2000 meter course is a 7 lane buoyed course with starting platforms, enclosed
finish tower and stadium seating for 3000 fans. Regatta information, Rules of
Rowing, a preliminary schedule of events, forms and directions are all within
Hunter Regatta is awarding a championship team trophy to the college and youth
team scoring the most overall points. Scoring
is based on USRowing scoring guidelines. We plan heats and finals for the
varsity 4s and 8s and college novice 4 events with first, second and third
place medals awarded for the finals. 2nd
varsity, lightweight and youth novice events will permit two boats to enter these
events. These races will be scheduled as
one race flights and will award first, second and third place medals for events
with four or more entries. We will also hold
several championship sponsored trophy events, awarding the winning team a race
trophy plus their individual gold medals.
important to note that we have adjusted the lightweight events to allow an
“early season bump”. Mens and women’s,
college and youth events will allow up to a 5 pound overage fir those
events. Please see the regatta rules
section for additional details.
We would like
to thank the Lake Lanier Rowing Club for their support and for providing a
world class facility for Georgia Tech and Saint Andrew to host the John Hunter
Regatta at Lake Lanier. On behalf of all
three clubs I invite you to compete at this year’s Hunter. With plenty of
water, an outstanding venue, and great weather, this year’s regatta promises to
be one of the best of the spring rowing season.
