Clemson Crew is excited to invite you and your team to the 5th 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 September 26th, 2015 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.

The Tail of the Tiger 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 to get to see just how fantastic Clemson University is as a school and as a place to row.  Finally, this race will provide novice rowers an exciting event to keep them motivated as they enter the spring season.
