PUB AND CLUB
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 a 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

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.
Stuff You Should Know
Bewdley Rowing Club Pub and Club Regatta is organised by Bewdley Rowing Club, a Community Amateur Sports Club, that applies any surplus on the event to the sport of rowing.
What You'll Win
The winners receive club full membership with use of all facilities worth over £300 and a pewter tankard each.
How To Enter
