ST NEOTS ROWING REGATTA WEEKEND
St Neots Rowing Club are pleased to host their annual Regatta over the weekend of 28th and 29th July 2018.
This is an important event in the club's calendar and is the largest 2-day regatta in the eastern region.
Clubs from far and wide come along to race side-by-side events from a 500 metre sprint on the Saturday to a longer 1,000 metre sprint on Sunday.
The weekend provides some exciting racing and is a great spectator event for all the family.
Entry is free to spectators and there will be a barbecue, licensed bar and other refreshments available the entire weekend and the club values the support from its towns folk.
This year the Club once again anticipates continuous racing over a 9 hour period on both days.
Racing starts at 9am on Saturday, through to 7pm, and from 8.30am on Sunday until 6pm.
Races will include both sculling and sweep-oar rowing and competitors from junior and senior categories.
The Club hosted its first Regatta in 1874. It now forms the largest river-based regatta in the Eastern Region and one of the largest two-day rowing events nationwide.
