Lake Wendouree will host the Rowing Victoria – The Geelong College Regatta for the first time this Saturday.

The Rowing Victoria event has been relocated to Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree Regatta course after a blue-green algae outbreak at the Barwon River in Geelong.

The regatta adds to the already very strong calendar of major Rowing Victoria regattas this season and follows last weekend’s successful Wendouree Ballarat Regatta, which attracted more than 1,000 participants.

Lake Wendouree will also host the Head of the Schoolboys’ Regatta on 15 February and the State Championship on 29 February and 1 March. The annual BAS Head of the Lake is scheduled for 23 February.
