The team loaded a charter bus at 5am Friday morning to head down to Sarasota, FL for the FIRA Championship Regatta. This regatta serves as the state championship for Florida collegiate rowing programs and Georgia Tech has been invited the last few years to compete as a guest school. Georgia Tech takes this opportunity to compete against some strong programs from the Sunshine State in preparation for SIRA championships, the Dad Vail Regatta, and ACRA.

Overall the team performed well. Eleven boats walked away with medals including six gold medals in the men’s and women’s novice 4+ B, women’s lightweight 8+, men’s and women’s lightweight 4+, and men’s novice 4+ A. These boats also earned betting shirts from their competitors. Check out our results page for more info.

The team travels to Oakridge, TN next weekend for the SIRA championships.
