John Hunter Regatta (www.JohnHunterRegatta.com)
The "Hunter" is named to honor a friend of rowing and benefactor to the Georgia Tech and Saint Andrew rowing clubs. John Hunter was instrumental in his support of the Georgia Tech Rowing Club and in the formation of the Saint Andrew youth team. It was John who had the vision to help these programs grow from a few dedicated rowers to the teams they are today. And it is in John's honor that we have named this event the John Hunter Regatta.
After four great years at Oak Ridge, we are returning to the Lake Lanier Olympic Rowing Center, the site of the 96 Olympic Games and the home of the Lake Lanier Rowing Club. In returning to Lake Lanier, the regatta is expected to draw more than 2,000 spectators and 1,000 rowers, representing more than 25 colleges and junior teams from throughout Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas and Florida.
