Head of the Hooch

Meg and I competed in the Head of the Hooch Regatta, our season ending 5K head race, a couple of weekends ago. The “Hooch” is quite an event. There were almost 10 times as many boats entered than the next largest regatta we’ve attended. We’ve never seen a traffic jam of racing sculls before. And the Tennessee River is BIG! We certainly didn’t ever envision ourselves rowing on such a large waterway when we first got started a few years ago. Our new Fluidesign double scull is magnificent and very stable (for a high-performance racing scull). But, I even raced the dilapidated club single I like to row and its kinda tippy. We’ve both come a long way since our first LTR class.
