This past weekend, the Clemson Rowing team took to the shores of Lake Hartwell to aid in the beautification of the East Beach and Seneca Creek. The rowing team participates in this event annually and has adopted the area around their facility, as well as the Seneca Creek Launch ramp. Saturday morning, rowers put their gloves on and grabbed their bags as they headed along the shoreline, through the wooded area around the boathouse, and the boat ramp in Seneca Creek. The purpose of this community service project is to maintain the beautiful atmosphere that Lake Hartwell creates so that everyone can enjoy it.

Lake Hartwell borders the west side of Clemson’s campus and has 962 miles of shoreline. Lake Hartwell is a recreational lake that lies as the border between South Carolina and Georgia. The lake is a big asset to the Tiger Rowing program. One big advantage is that the water is home to only the Tiger rowers–no other rowing programs train on Lake Hartwell besides Clemson’s varsity and club teams. Another advantage is South Carolina’s weather. It is ideal for rowing and warm temperatures make it easy to be on the water year round. Lake Hartwell provides a pristine venue that enables Clemson to host the ACC Championships as well as many home regattas.

The Tiger Rowing Team takes to the water next Sunday, October 17th, to host the 7th Annual Class Day Regatta. Check out the website after the races to see which class won the bragging rights for the year!
