Message from Marlow Regatta Chairman

Thank you to everyone who came to our regatta yesterday and we regret that, in some cases due to infrastructure issues, we did not achieve the standards for competitors and spectators that we had aimed for. The racing format was a first for a large British domestic regatta, offering a Time Trial and Final for all crews. We will carry out a thorough review of how that was planned and implemented.

Some coaches expressed concerns about the possibility of time trial times affecting the decision by Henley Stewards on crews being asked to qualify. All I can report is that the times of crews racing in both the side-by-side races and the time trials have been passed to them for their own assessment.

I invite you to email me at with your comments which will be taken into account when our committee meets in early July.

We look forward to seeing you all again next June and hope that you understand that we are all volunteers whose aim is to run a safe and fair regatta. If we fail in some areas we regret that this may have spoilt your own enjoyment this year.

Peter Blaseby

Apologies that we are still resolving a few gremlins with some times and hope to have these fixed soon.

We would appreciate any feedback on the day to - what went wrong, what went well, did the TT & Finals format work?

IMPORTANT: Parking on local roads

It has been drawn to our attention that at the Metropolitan Regatta, many cars were parked in local roads in Boveney. Local Planning prohibits this and several residents and businesses were severely affected. Police are now alert to this problem and will be patrolling and take action. So please don’t park off site, on roads or verges. You will be in trouble if you do.

All crews should have received their car park passes, 3 per eight, 2 per four and 1 per double/single. So please use them and park in the designated area at Dorney Lake.
