Chattanooga has a solid rowing community and a great boathouse a few miles from downtown off Amnicola Highway. If you are new to the sport then check out the classes offered by the Lookout Rowing Club. If you are more of a spectator then check out the Chattanooga Head Race that takes place in October and finishes downtown at Ross Landing on the Tennessee River.
Tennessee River Directions:
The William G. Raoul Boathouse is at 1001 Riverside Dr. Head east from downtown Chattanooga for 2.5 miles on Amnicola Hwy/Riverside Dr./TN-58.
