2018 Long Distance Sculls

News - 24Sept 2018: We will unfortunately not be able to run Long Distance Sculls again this year as the boating facility at Longridge is not available for our use.

We are hoping that we will be able to work out a solution to allow the event to resume in 2019

About the Event 

The Spring Regatta is run over approximately 1,000 metres from Bisham Abbey to Higginson Park. Racing is up to 3 abreast and the event is run in three waves to give opportunities for doubling up.

We have events for Seniors, Adaptive rowers, Masters and Juniors.  We will do our best to accommodate requests for other events, but this is a popular regatta and we tend to be oversubscribed so please get your entries in quickly!

Note to coaches: for many of our younger competitors this is their first regatta.  We understand this and will try to make allowances for inexperienced crews, however coaches should be confident that crews are competent to paddle to the start, manoeuvre and race over the course.  If in the opinion of the chief umpire a crew is not able to complete the distance safely or without undue delay to the running of the regatta they may not be permitted to race.

The next club time trial which will be on the morning of 14 December. Any member can take part. The trial will start at 7.30am and will consist of two timed upstream runs from the grey bridge to the sailing club. People can take part in any boat type except eights. People who normally boat at Longbridge will have to bring boats up through the lock, and will therefore be given later start times. Club members wanting to take part should speak to their coach, or contact Sally directly for details of registration and start times.
