Georgia Tech Crew was officially chartered in 1986, and has since grown from a team of four to a team of 90+ athletes, making it the largest club sport at Georgia Tech. The team is also one of the most successful organizations at Georgia Tech, consistently earning medals at the Dad Vail and ACRA national championship regatta for more than 12 years in a row.

End of the semester two-day regatta, what we’ve all been working towards. Going for that gold again.
Date: May 27, 2017
Location: Gainesville, GA at the Olympic Rowing and Kayak Venue
Two-day regatta for those still in town/can make it back. Big race with a lot of big teams.
Now that we have endured winter training, logged endless meters of erging, won a golden hammer at Atlanta Erg Sprints, and visited Clemson for our first scrimmage, it’s safe to say that Spring Season is now in full force. Spring 2017 is here, and we could not be more excited to see what is in store!
Each week, the squads have been making trips out to the river as water practices are becoming more vital in the spring training. 5 am practices, 6 pm practices, you name it, and the rowers are putting in work. For good reason, too. Spring season is what the athletes train for. The Dad Vail regatta and ACRA become the true showcase of all of the effort and training from fall to winter to spring.
It’s a busy last half of a semester for sure. All squads will be traveling down to Panama City for spring training-where they will proceed to practice 2-3 times a day in the nice Florida weather near the beach. We’ll call it our team’s “business trip”. To finish off the week, the team is participating in the John Hunter Regatta, located in Gainesville, GA. This is where everyone can apply the week of hard work to the test. The rest of the semester includes racing in FIRA ((for the women’s and novice men’s teams)), Jacksonville Scrimmage ((varsity men only)), SIRA, Dad Vail, and ACRA.
Excited to see what all this season has in store, and come out and support your jackets at these races!
