Racing

Welcome to our website.
The Marlow Regatta will take place on Saturday 22nd June 2024

The Regatta will be run in two halves, a morning regatta and an afternoon regatta, each producing winners. All crews will race a Time Trial, and then be allocated to Finals. The Time Trial will be over 1,900m, and Finals over 2K. Our objective will be to give all crews a Final side-by-side race, but this may not be possible in all cases. Should conditions not permit side-by-side racing, results will be based upon the time trial results, assuming that these have been completed.

Provided that four crews race in each event, winners will receive individual prizes.

All entries are to be made via the British Rowing On-Line entry system.

We hope that these arrangements will give as many athletes the opportunity to have at least some racing experience in these most unusual times.
