In rowing parlance, a "hammer" is a rower who can be counted on for all brawn, all guts, all the time. Being called a "hammer" is a true compliment, and it means you really help move the boat.
A "regatta" is a competition between rowing shells. Thus an "ergatta" is the indoor equivalent on an ergometer, also known as an 'erg' or rowing machine.
Since its inception in 1990, the Hammer Ergatta has been the highlight of the winter training season for local and regional rowers. Rowers typically spend weeks conditioning themselves on the erg to prepare for the rowing season. Dozens of ergometers await high school, college and adult rowers who try to out-do each other's time for a 2000 meter distance.
