The senior women’s squad have been making final preparations for Saturday’s re-enactment of the Wear Scurry, a feature of the early years of Durham Regatta.
This and other re-enactments will take place between 1.30 and 2.30pm in a break between the scheduled races at this year’s Durham Regatta, alongside the Racecourse on the River Wear in Durham on Saturday June 13th, and will feature a race in punts, one of which has kindly been donated by John Appleby, between 2 teams of 6 rowers and dragon-boaters using traditional paddles.

A further re-enactment will see a 9-abreast race in skiffs between scullers kitted out in traditional attire. Visitors in traditional dress will be invited to join the procession of boats.
