8 lanes on a 2,000m lake
ATTRACTING INTERNATIONAL COMPETITORS
Marlow Regatta is situated at Dorney Lake, Eton (near Windsor) which has world class facilities and hosted the London 2012 Olympic Games. It is also one of the major regattas in the British Rowing calendar, attracting a large entry from schools, clubs and universities from around the UK along with overseas crews who are preparing for Henley Royal Regatta just down the road.
It's an independent regatta that isn't run on behalf of a single rowing club, but is organised by a committee of volunteers on behalf of the regatta Subscribers.
The Regatta takes place on a Saturday two weeks prior to Henley Royal Regatta and for some competitors this will be the last chance to pre-qualify for Henley Royal. Racing is from 08:30 and 19:00, with Time Trials followed by finals. Races use 6-7 lanes of the 8 lane 2,000m lake.
