Back On The Water For This Year’s Head Of The Hooch

Head of the Hooch

This weekend, one of the largest rowing regattas in the world returns to the water here in Chattanooga.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Head of the Hooch will take place on the Tennessee River - ending at Ross’ Landing Park.

Last year’s competition on the water was canceled due to the pandemic, shifting to a virtual event.

That was then - this is now.

Mike Connors is regatta director for this year’s Head of the Hooch.
