After hosting the Olympic rowing and canoeing regatta 12 months ago, this weekend Dorney Lake plays host to Marlow Regatta. The regatta committee are delighted that in spite of the horrendous weather conditions athletes and spectators experienced at last year’s regatta, there has been a good entry across all events. The regatta this weekend will welcome over 150 eights – which must be approaching the record for the Regatta.

On Saturday 15 June crews will race over 2000 metres and spectators will see local crews and clubs including, Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School, Eton College, Claires Court, Shiplake College, RGS High Wycombe, Maidenhead, Marlow, Henley, Upper Thames, Staines and Leander battle it out over the 2000 metre course. The regatta will welcome foreign crews ASR Nereus (Holland), Brentwood College (USA), Tigre (Argentina), Union Nautique De Liege (Belgium) and a strong Irish contingent from Carlow, Dublin University, and Trinity College Dublin Rowing Club. Despite the date being moved to accommodate the World Cup Regatta (21 June- 23 June) Marlow Regatta has retained its prequalifying status for Henley Regatta, so the stage is set for some very exciting racing.

The Elite Eight event will see top crews from across the country battle it out to win the Grand Challenge Cup, including Thames RC, Abingdon School, Molesey BC, Oxford Brookes University, and Newcastle University.

On Sunday 16 June the course will be reduced to 1000m for the Masters events where competitors of more advanced years, many in the over 60’s class, of both sexes, will show that the competitive spirit never dies!

 The regatta committee have been keen to embrace the legacy of 2012, so for the first time, have added Adaptive rowing to the race schedule. This builds on the success of the Olympic Adaptive Rowing regatta last year and offers these competitors a fairly rare domestic opportunity to compete against each other, on a multi-lane course.

Following the remedial work necessary after the Olympics and in light of preparations ahead of the World Cup regatta, some of the areas that would normally play host to the regatta are out of bounds. There is however, still plenty of room for spectators to come and cheer on the local clubs and schools.
