Introduction: The Rocky Mount Regatta is one of the oldest and most prestigious rowing regattas on the east coast of the United States. It is a professionally run, competitive, amateur and family friendly event held annually in The Diamonds, a world class athletic venue located in downtown Rocky Mount.

History: The Rocky Mount Regatta was founded in 2000 by a small group of dedicated individuals who saw the need for a regatta on the east coast. This group organized and raised money for a first-class regatta which consisted of eight events, with the goal being to make it one of the top three competitive regattas in North America. Within a few years, these goals were realized and supported by hundreds of volunteers, both elite athletes and local residents. The Regatta was held in Cedar Island, NC, until 2007. In 2008 the Regatta moved to its present location in downtown Rocky Mount.
Mission: The Rocky Mount Regatta provides a premier venue for elite athletes and recreational rowers to compete in a world class setting, which is designed for spectators and participants to have an enjoyable experience.
