JOHN HUNTER REGATTA
Lake Lanier Olympic Course
March 19 - 20, 2016
The Saint Andrew Rowing Club is delighted to welcome you to the 30th 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 6 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
There are two major changes being made for the 2016 Hunter:
- The first change is we are going to go to a 2 day event. Because of the growing size of the Hunter it is increasingly difficult to get all of the events completed in one day. In an effort to help teams keep their costs down, we will run college events on Saturday morning with finals in the early afternoon, and youth teams starting on Sunday morning and finishing by early afternoon.
- Second, the dates for the 2016 regatta will be March 19th and 20th. For the past several years we have held the regatta on the 4th weekend of March, however, in 2016 the 4th weekend is Easter weekend. We felt it would be more understanding for many competitors to move the Hunter up to the 3rd weekend. It is our plan to return to the 4th weekend in March for 2017.
We hope these changes will allow the teams more time between events, while at the same time minimizing costs to the teams. Colleges will be able to stay on Friday night and leave mid-day Saturday. Youth teams can arrive on Saturday afternoon, only having to stay overnight on Saturday, and leave mid-day Sunday.
Thank you for your support for the Hunter over the past several years and we look forward to seeing you this spring.
