Head of the South Regatta
- Augusta Riverwalk
The Augusta Rowing Club hosts HOTS (Head of the South) Regatta this fall!
Rowing was reintroduced in the Augusta area in 1984 when a group of community leaders began hosting a local regatta which quickly grew into a nationally recognized event. While the purpose of this event was to draw interest to the Savannah River and bring an economic impact to the city, an immediate interest began among local rowing enthusiasts who wanted to start a club themselves. Since then the club has quietly grown into a nationally recognized facility on the east coast having hosted two Olympic teams and producing several nationally ranked scholastic teams.
