Clemson Crew is excited to invite you and your team to the 3rd annual Tail of the Tiger Regatta.  Those who have been to Clemson Sprints know what a great place Clemson is to race, and racing here in the fall is even better.  On October 5th, 2013 a 5,000 meter headrace known as The Tail of the Tiger will take place on beautiful Lake Hartwell.  This race will challenge your crews with multiple turns, bridges, and of course great competition.


For crews heading to the Charles, this race will be an excellent tune up in preparation for Boston.  The Tail of the Tiger also provides an opportunity for quality competition and a challenging racecourse that will give your coxswains a chance to hone their race management and steering skills.  Junior rowers will enjoy the chance to check out some collegiate programs and of course get to see just how fantastic Clemson University is as a school and a place to row.  Finally, this race will provide novice rowers an exciting event to keep them motivated as they enter the spring season.
