What It Is

The event is organised for crews of persons with no or very little rowing experience. During May the crews will be coached and coxed by rowing club members resulting in round robin style racing for men, women and mixed crews in coxed fours over a 400m downstream course. Year on year this has become more and more fancy dress based, which makes for a fun spectacle. We generally have over 70 crews enter, the race is held at the end of May or beginning of June, depending on when the towns carnival is due to take place.

As well as the races on the water, the day also involves ergo (rowing machine) competitions, a disco and barbecue. It’s very much a family day held the weekend before the local carnival which starts off carnival week in the town, with fun to be had by all, participants and spectators alike.

So get planning now, entries are welcome for the following events:

  • Men’s Coxed Fours
  • Women’s Coxed Fours
  • Mixed Coxed Fours

You can enter a complete crew of four friends, family or colleagues, a partial crew or as an individual. For partial crews and individuals we’ll match you up to create some composite crews.

What It Costs

The entry fee is £60 per crew for which you’ll receive almost 6 weeks training and coaching with a maximum of six 1 hour sessions on the water over those 6 weeks, your entry into the Regatta, full access to the club, its gym and the bar! – and you don’t get value like that these days!

What You’ll Need

All you need is some enthusiasm and standard sports clothing. Rowing is a water sport, so you can expect to get a bit wet from splashes etc so you should also bring along a change of clothes when training on the water.

We have changing rooms and showers at the club for you to use.

All coaching and equipment will be provided by us, and we’ll cox the boats (unless you have an experienced cox of your own you want to bring along) but don’t forget all rowers must have no, or very little experience.

What You’ll Win

The winners receive a year’s full club membership worth over £300 and a pewter tankard each.
