Dogwood Masters Regatta Competitors Enjoy Inaugural Event

Under sunny skies and warm temperatures, 18 clubs with 126 entries gathered to meet, socialize and compete on Melton Lake this past Sunday.  The Masters-only event, now separate from the Dogwood Junior Championship Regatta, provides a relaxed atmosphere on-shore, with serious competition on the water in every event class.  Oak Ridge Rowing Association provided a fixed Start Platform (no floating starts!), and 7-wide racing along the peninsula.  A warm welcome to our participants, with teams from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts!
