ROSWELL, Ga— The 33rd Annual John Hunter Regatta was held on March 28 at Lake Lanier Olympic Park with over 42 clubs from around the country and totaling over 385 entries. It was a 2-day event that many teams considered to be an important start to their spring race season. Georgia Tech and Saint Andrew Rowing Club, who share a boathouse and training facility, co-sponsored the competition. College clubs practiced on Friday and raced on Saturday, while the High School programs have a full day of racing on Sunday.
Parents of St. Andrew Rowing Club headed the orchestration and coordination of hundreds of volunteers to fill over 500 positions across three days of activities. This included driving boats, running concessions and judging.
“[Our athletes and their families] really take pride in coming back year after year to help make the John Hunter a success for the next generation of athletes,” Renee Stevens, President of St. Andrew Rowing Club, said. “Many alumni return to this amazing venue with their new families to share their love for the sport.”
