Competitively-minded Rocket City Rowing Masters compete at 3-4 regattas in the Fall and Spring seasons in Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida; as well as one indoor rowing competition in January. Fall races are conducted in a head race format where boats row against the clock, departing at 15-30 second intervals over an approximately 5,000 meter course that varies according to the local geography. Spring races are conducted on a 1,000 meter course against a field of 6-8 other boats of the same classification set by age, experience level, and number of oars in the water. Spring racing culminates in regional and national level championships.
