2018 Regatta - Monday 7th May

3 May 2018 18:00  MSR 2018 was CANCELLED

Unfortunately, due to the conditions in the trailer field / boating meadow the Organising Committee reluctantly took the decision to cancel Marlow Spring Regatta 2018.

The unusually heavy rainfall that we have experienced over the last few weeks has resulted in the boating meadow being waterlogged.

Whilst it would have been possible to relocate trailer parking to the car parking field in Higginson Park, the pathway between there and the stretch of riverbank that we use for boating is mostly underwater.

Ensuring the safety of our competitors, spectators and the general public is paramount and, having evaluated the options, we have concluded that there is no alternative route or boating location that could be used.

We have taken this decision today in order to minimise non-cancellable costs and will be refunding entry fees in full.

We know how much our competitors look forward to and enjoy MSR and we are truly sorry to disappoint them.

Marlow Town Regatta will be opening for entries on BROE over the weekend. We hope very much that we will see you all in Marlow on 16th June. 


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 is in a wave format.  We have events for Seniors up to IM3 category, Adaptive scullers, 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.

Please note that there will be a charge of £5 per car for competitors and spectators.  

The field will not be mown before the event so you are advised to look out for stinging nettles or wear leggings!
