Chairman's update March 2024

Despite the persistent rain, we're eagerly anticipating the summer days and the thrill of races at the National Schools' Regatta. The thought of sun-soaked competition is keeping our spirits high!

 

Exciting news! Our event schedule has received a little shake-up. Some age groups and events have shifted around, so keep an eye out for those changes. Specifically, the Junior 15 Eights and Coxed Fours events have made a leap from Friday to Saturday.

 

We're excited for you to experience these changes! They're designed with the aim to offer all our competitors a top-notch competition experience. So please note the tweaks to the distances to which the Junior 14 crews will compete over, this change is again based on feedback.

We're thrilled to share the good news about the National Schools’ Regatta 2024! Elston Consulting is back on board as our partner and their continued support, especially from Henry Cobb and his team, ensures a fantastic experience for all competitors and supporters alike. Their commitment allows us to make this event more exciting and engaging than ever before!

 

We are grateful to you all for your support - a big shout-out to the clubs and schools who have claimed their spot along the regatta course. To the rowing business community, your participation in the Regatta Village and Row Show is truly valued. And to our University Clubs, your relentless enthusiasm never goes unnoticed.
