Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club Fun Regatta July 9th 2017

The club & its members are pleased that our local NFU Mutual Branch, Wheaton, Lamb & Burrows have partnered with us again to sponsor the event for a second year, we thank them for their continued support.

We warmly invite new & old friends to our club & sport, to undertake 3 hours of expert training, to enable you along with a crew of friends/ family or work colleagues to race in our Fun Regatta, with the emphasis on fun, but you know that competitive streak will surface once you get going.

You will get 3 races in the main regatta & if you qualify your crew will then progress into the knock-out phase & hopefully triumph in the final.

Crews are categorised Men/ Women & Mixed in both Novice & Experienced, with the more experienced crews being handicapped with time penalties to make the racing across the categories as close & exciting as possible.

For the Mad Hatters amongst you, there is also a fancy dress competition, with a prize for the best entry.

The fastest crew in each category will win traditional tankards, with the overall winner also winning a prize.

On the day, we will have catering to supply you with a Bacon or Sausage bap for breakfast with Hot Dogs & Burgers for later in the day, along with our Tea Tent selling Tea, Coffee & Cakes, along with a licenced bar.

We would love to see you again if you’ve taken part before, to hopefully improve you skills further & fun on the day & to also see new faces at the event.

You never know, it might spark an interest in our sport & you might want to enrol in one of our Learn To Row Courses, you’ll never know unless you try!!

We are a volunteer run club & everyone would love to see you at our fun day, hopefully we’ll see you there.

If this has wetted your appetite, please contact our organiser Dawson Curnock for the entry form & competition rules & notes at

We have a limited amount of spaces for crews on the day, so please do not be disappointed & get your entry in early.
