North Orlando Rowing is attending the Head of the Hooch!!!

One of the world's largest rowing regattas...

  • The Head of the Hooch is one of the world’s largest rowing regattas, with 2,000+ boats racing over two days. More than 9,000 seats are rowed. 1,200 boats compete on Saturday alone, more in one day than any other regatta. Participants come from over 200 different organizations and in 2012 the regatta welcomed crews from 27 different states. The Head of the Hooch has seen a growth in entries from other countries. The regatta has hosted teams from Canada, Germany, Sweden and Australia. The Head of the Hooch has been recognized by national magazines as the regatta to attend: the weather is nice, the city is great and the racing has the largest number of entries per event of any major regatta. The regatta is organized and hosted by the Atlanta Rowing Club, Roswell, GA and Lookout Rowing Club, Chattanooga, TN.


NOR is in a fund raising campaign to get a floating dock for the new boat house.

All North Orlando Rowing athletes have experienced physical transformations being a part of a competitive team.  North Orlando Rowing conditioning and strength training changes appearances, self-perception and self-esteem.

Being Part of a Team

Rowing is the ultimate team sport.  In addition to individual conditioning and strength factors, rowing requires a synchronicity not found in many other sports.


Balancing the sport with scholastic work and other pursuits may be challenging at first.  The end result, however, is a focused young adult with time-management skills, ready to take on life’s challenges.
