Rocket City Rowing Club, Inc., of Huntsville, Alabama invites you to participate in the 2014 Hobbs Island Regatta on the beautiful Tennessee River. Founded in 1996, RCRC is a rapidly expanding rowing organization and is proud to host Alabama's only head race regatta. Located in North Alabama, Huntsville is convenient too much of the southeast region and many parts of the mid-Atlantic and Midwest regions.
The Hobbs Island Regatta is a 4500 meter head race held on a side channel of the Tennessee River. Hobbs Island is an undeveloped island that separates the majority of the course from the main channel of the Tennessee River and shelters the side channel waters from wind, waves, barges, and other river boat traffic. The race course begins at the head of Hobbs Island and follows a series of gentle bends around the island. The finish line is located upstream of the mouth of Ditto Landing Marina.
