Marlow Regatta to run less that 8 weeks before the Olympic Games

2012 will see the world’s gaze firmly fixed on the UK for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Never has it been a more exciting time for British Sport, and particularly British Rowing. Some of our strongest medal hopes lie with the British rowing squad and Dorney Lake looks set to be the backdrop to an exciting and much anticipated games.

Whilst London 2012 gives those at the pinnacle of their rowing careers the opportunity to test their metal against a global competition, it also offers all facets of the sport the opportunity to utilise the world’s finest competitive rowing facilities. LOCOG have kindly given Marlow Regatta at Dorney Lake dispensation, as one the UK’s leading domestic events, to run the event between June 16th and 17th 2012. The Marlow Regatta committee would like to take this opportunity to publically thank LOCOG and Dorney Lake for allowing access to the lake during the lock down period, allowing our competitors to race on the course so close to the prestigious games. All those involved in the event are extremely excited at the prospect of this event and are delighted to be able to invite athletes to get a glimpse of the site, and compete on the Olympic lake before the Hunter’s and Purchase’s of this world (hopefully) turn the lake gold for Team GB next August.

There will, of course, be some modifications to the logistics of the event to allow for the vital preparation for the Games to continue, but Marlow Regatta at Dorney Lake will still offer the high level of competition that has come to be the hallmark of the event. An increased racing programme for Masters in addition to the traditional programme means that there is an even greater opportunity for the whole rowing community to have a piece of the action. The regatta committee would like to take this opportunity to invite the rowing community, athletes and spectators to savour the build up to the games and get a glimpse of what next August will bring to Dorney Lake.

2012 Marlow Regatta

A meeting of the full Marlow Regatta committee was held at Leander Club on Wednesday 19th October where the following items were confirmed for the 2012 regatta.

  • The regatta would take place on Saturday 16th (2000m) and Sunday 17th (1000m) June.
  • Racing for Masters' crews (men's and women's) would be retained on the Sunday.
  • The Masters' events would be extended to offer a fuller range of age categories.
  • Sunday racing would return to the normal heats & finals format.

With the Olympic Regatta taking place at Dorney Lake later in 2012 there will be some disruption to the facilities available to other regattas held on the course earlier in the year. Dorney Lake and LOCOG are currently in discussion to determine the extent of these disruptions.
