With less than a week till entries close and just over two weeks until regatta day the Marlow Regatta committee are putting the final touches in place for the 2014 Marlow Regatta on the 21st June at Dorney Lake. Planning has been underway for some time now for the new racing format being run this year, and the logistics required to time trial 400+ crews and then give them all a side-by-side race. A bit like running the HORR followed by a regatta!
The time trials will be used to seed the lanes for the finals, with the fastest 7 crews in each boat class racing in the 'A' final, the next 7 in the 'B' final and so on. Every boat will get to race a time trial and a final. Full results will be available via the Regatta Master website. Regatta Radio, ably supported by the Marlow commentators, will be commentating on 87.7FM throughout the day and also live over the internet, so races can be listened to anywhere in the world by supporters from Australia, South Africa, America and Ireland as well as around the UK.

Mike Spencer-Jones, Regatta Entries Secretary said, "With a large number of entries already received and 6 more days to go before entries close on the 11th June, it looks like we are in for a large entry at Dorney Lake this year. I'm expecting some very close racing too from the seeded finals which should be exciting to watch. We regret not being able to offer the Sunday racing for Masters and Para-rowers this year as we are unable to hire the lake. This is a pity as the event was proving to be popular."

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.
