Once Upon A Bus - A world of story telling

To help entertain the children, and the child in you, between races we will be hosting "Once Upon A Bus" at the 2014 Marlow Regatta with their double-decker bus.

A wonderful new world-on-wheels of storytelling rolled in to the Royal Borough on May the 10th!  "Once Upon a Bus" has been launched to celebrate the traditional storytelling craft with entertaining sessions on a beautiful customised double-decker bus.

Specially developed to allow young people to enjoy and explore the magic of storytelling in an interactive, immersive environment, designed, inside and out, to deliver an out-of-this-world experience, the storytelling bus will transform any event into an unforgettable adventure... through the deep dark forests, over soaring mountains, tranquil villages, bustling towns and endless oceans of the imagination.

Regatta Radio at Marlow Regatta

We are delighted to confirm that Regatta Radio will once again be broadcasting race commentary from Dorney Lake, Eton, at the 2014 Marlow Regatta on the 21st June.

The broadcast frequency has now been confirmed as 87.7fm once again, plus we will have the usual audio streams available over the internet. We aim to keep our commentators busy this year. Following the morning time trials all crews will race in a final, 'A' for the fastest 7 crews, then 'B' for the next 7 and so on. The new race format promises to give them lots of close racing to commentate on as we expect all the finals to be close races.

What has happened to the 2nd day?

For the last few years Marlow Regatta have been running a 2nd day, with racing over 1000m, aimed primarily at the growing Master's rowing scene. Regretfully we are unable to continue to do this as our venue, Dorney Lake, is now unavailable for hire on the Sunday.

Given the popularity and growth of the event, in the short time we have been running it, we are disappointed not to be able to continue. Should the lake become available again in future years the committee are sure this will be revisited and the event brought back. We also regret that due to the full program of racing we have on the Saturday that there is no space to offer races for Masters over 1000m, but if you feel like giving the new race format a try, over the full 2000m course, we would be delighted to see you. You will get a time trial and then a final against boats of a similar speed.
