All events will take place as a free start over a two-lane course and will be decided by knock-out competitions.

Events are offered in three Waves. However; NO doubling-up of competitors or coxes is permitted – either within or between waves.

Masters’ age classifications offered will depend on entries received and may be combined. Mixed Masters events must contain a 50%/50% split of the crew male/female athletes.

ENTRIES:  May only be made on-line through the British Rowing BROE2 website. No postal or e-mailed entries will be accepted.
Entries will open on Sunday 2nd May 2021 (time TBA) and close on Thursday 13th May at midday; the draw will take place on Saturday 15th May (time TBA). Payment must be made by BACS or via BROE2. Queries to please.

ENTRY FEES:  £16 per seat (no charge for coxes).

The Regatta Draw and full instructions will be available here on the regatta website.

Please ensure that the contact information that appears on a Club’s entries is correct and complete.

The Regatta offers a wide range of events, but is limited as to the number of races it can accommodate. Wave 1 will be nominally from 0830 to 1100, Wave 2 from 1130 to 1400, and Wave 3 from 1430 to 1700. These timing are subject to change depending upon entries.

The Committee reserves the right to refuse entries which are incomplete, to cancel any event with insufficient entries, and to close the entry system early if capacity has been reached. In the case of what it judges to be insufficient entries for a viable event, the Committee will transfer the entry to the next higher class without reference, unless it is made clear on the entry that this is not acceptable. If a crew wishes not to be accommodated by this method, preferences must be made clear in the free-text part of the BROE entry.

In the event of cancellation of the regatta, refund of fees will be made after taking into consideration all unavoidable costs.
