Welcome to the Desborough Dashes Regatta website

This event is being held as the usual events on the Thames at Walton and Weybridge at this time are sadly too far restricted by covid regulations to be run in the manner with which they are normally conducted. The Desborough Dashes Regatta is a simpler event which will allow extra time and space to enable it to be operated in a covid secure manner.

The event will be held between the two bridges over the Desborough Cut.

In order to run the event in a covid secure manner we have to severely limit the number of entries. We can only accommodate clubs who can row to the event plus five trailers which is why it’s open only to invited organisations. Sadly we are also positively discouraging spectators to limit the number of people at the event.

All documentation will be made available on this website when available:

  • Instructions for competitors
  • Course map
  • Information for Umpires, Marshals and officials
  • Covid briefing
  • Safety Plan

Dates for your calendars:

  • 2nd May – entries open on BROE
  • 13th May mid-day – entries close
  • 15th May – Draw
  • 22nd May – Event

The event is being jointly created by the Captains of Weybridge Rowing Club and Walton Rowing Club for the enjoyment of local rowers with the considerable assistance of many volunteer members of both clubs.

Clive Capel – Captain, Weybridge Rowing Club
