Heart of Texas

  • Hosted By: Austin Rowing Club
  • USRowing Sanctioned Regatta

The Heart of Texas Regatta, a USRowing Nationally Recognized Regatta, is held annually in late February, making it one of the first sprint regattas of the spring. Since 1983, Austin Rowing Club has had the pleasure of hosting this fast-paced regatta on Lady Bird Lake. In the beginning, the regatta was primarily for visiting crews and today the event has grown to include Masters, Open and Junior events across two days of racing. Held on a seven lane, fully-buoyed 1,000 meter course with a state-of-the-art starting platform, this regatta sees over 500 entries with 1,000+ competitors annually.
