Crews wanted for Allcomers Regatta

Sunday July 15th has been set as the date for the 2018 Durham City Allcomers Regatta, an event for those who haven’t rowed before, and crews are needed!

Entries are invited for our annual fun regatta, racing in stable coxed fours over a short course on the River Wear. All you need to do is gather together 4 people to form a crew.

Entry is £80 per crew. Cox and coach will be provided by the club, as will all equipment, including a boat!

So how does it work?

  • Crews race over a 300-metre course
  • One experienced rower permitted per crew
  • Male, female and mixed crews can take part
  • Four practice sessions in advance of the day
  • Each crew is guaranteed at least 2 races
  • Previous Allcomers winners count as experienced
  • Unsuccessful competitors can re-enter

Entries close on Wednesday July 4th.

Further details can be found on the Allcomers page and on the flyer, so ask your friends to form a crew.

Entry forms will be available soon so start planning now.
