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 just below 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.
