When is the Leeds Sprint Regatta?
We are currently meeting with clubs around the country to confirm the optimal date for this event. Once the date is confirmed, we'll announce it via our social media channels and will send an email to all those who have registered their interest or signed up for our mailing list.
In what other cities will RowUK be running a Sprint Regatta?
We aspire to run a series of Sprint Regattas across the UK and are considering several urban centres. Cities that subscribe to the RowUK Sprint Regatta will also be considered for our Programmes. Want your city to be next? Get in touch.
How are crews selected?
Anyone can register their interest in this event. This will be an invitational event. We will select the crews based on form. Clubs in host cities will be automatically pre-selected. We will be keeping an eye on crews and individuals throughout the beginning of the season, both on and off the water.
When will crews be notified of their successful application?
A golden ticket will arrive in the post (and we will also drop you an email with all of the race information)
What facilities will be provided?
We will be providing discounted hotel accommodation for crews. There will be street food vans, live music and after-parties. We will have ergs available for warm up, and for a quick RowUK250 challenge for those who want to make it onto another Leaderboard. As you might expect of any Regatta, we will also have crew village including changing facilities, showers, refreshments and trailer parking. We will also have various suppliers available for repairs, advice and a bit of shopping.
I don't want to race, but I want to watch. How much is a ticket?
It is free to watch the event, and you'll be right at the sidelines, able to see the start and the finish. It's going to be a regatta like no other. We'll announce the date soon and as a member of our mailing list, you'll receive information about how to make the most from the event.
Want to make a day of it with colleagues, clients, friends and family, and guarantee the best view of the finish line? Hospitality tickets will be available and will include drinks, food and entertainment. If you are interested in finding out more, drop us a line.
