The Nottingham Regatta weekend takes place at the National Watersports Centre at Holme Pierrepont and consists of Nottingham City Regatta for senior crews contested over 2000 metres on Saturday, and Nottingham Masters & Club Regatta over a 1000 metre course on Sunday, both providing a further opportunity for those seeking multi-lane competition.

The Women’s coxless quad had opposition from four other crews in the second of two heats of the W4x- in the City Regatta on Saturday, finishing 3rd behind City of Cambridge in 7.36.87 to qualify for the final in which they were 6th to Molesey BC.

In the Masters & Club Regatta on Sunday Michael Terry finished 3rd in the MasD single sculls final in the morning, before the Masters Women contested 3 events in the afternoon. The WMasB four was 2nd to Worcester in 3.52.7 in the final of the WMasB/C coxed four, then the WMasB quad took 2nd place to Burton Leander in 3.55.5 in the WMasB/C 4x- final, and lastly the WMasB coxless four took another 2nd place against Worcester with 4.03.8 in the WMasB/C 4-.

The next regattas in the Northern region are Wansbeck Regatta on Saturday, May 18th and Hexham Regatta on June 1st. Entries for Wansbeck have now closed and those for Hexham have been suspended early due, as is often the case, to the event being fully subscribed, Hexham generally proving much more popular than Wansbeck possibly due to its later position in the calendar.
