2015 Marlow Regatta Press Release

Local Clubs and schools race international clubs at Marlow Regatta.

This Saturday 20 June, Dorney Lake, will play host to the 160th Marlow Regatta.

As the 2012 Olympic rowing venue, Dorney is no stranger to international competition. This weekend, lining up against crews from the USA, China and New Zealand among others, will be local talent from Maidenhead RC, Marlow RC, Claire’s Court, The Windsor Boys School, Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School, Great Marlow School, Eton Excelsior RC, RGS High Wycombe, Eton College and over 100 clubs from across the UK.

The quality of the entries this year is very high in all of the Elite status events for eights, coxed /coxless fours and quadruple sculls.
Many of those competing in the top events come from “high performance clubs”, as nominated by British Rowing. Members of these clubs are striving to impress the GB team selectors to ultimately have a chance to race for the national squad.

Whether those competing come from a high performance clubs, or just enjoy a paddle at the weekend, the Committee are expecting an exciting days racing. The format this year is that the first race in each event will be run as a time trial and then crews will be seeded into finals (A, B, C etc) based on their results. As the crews in each final are matched based on their speed earlier in the day spectators should expect a few photo finishes!

Commenting on this years’ Regatta, Peter Blaseby, Marlow Regatta Chairman said: "We are delighted that the entries this year are so strong. Spectators are set for an exciting day of racing across all racing categories. "
"A regatta such as ours relies on the support of the athletes, our sponsors, volunteers, visiting officials and spectators and we are delighted that once again the Marlow Regatta is set to be a top class fixture in the racing calendar and we wish all those competing the very best of luck, particularly those crews aiming to use Marlow as a qualifier for Henley Royal Regatta"
