Added guidance on contaminated water.

Revised the Entertainment page

We have checked land and water conditions – looking good. A final check will be carried out at noon on Friday.

You can expect final race orders for both days to be published on Friday evening at the latest. These will have taken account of scratchings and other points raised by coaches.

On regatta days Registration will be open for crew number collection as follows:

Both days from 0730

However on Saturday, the only numbers that will be issued between 0730 and 0900 will be those for crews racing between 0900 and 1000.

Here are some special features about the Regatta

Why not enter our oldest invitation event – the Garrick Doubles? This was originally designed for a senior oarsman and a novice oarsman. Times and classifications have changed a lot in 118 years, but the principle is the same – an experienced rower and an  inexperienced rower racing together. The silver cup is enormous and beautiful – well worth a picture. The event is mixed and defined in modern terms under Competitors.

A new cup was added to the collection in 2018. It is an 1874 Molesey Regatta oak-bound quart tankard. It was presented to the regatta by Phil Bourgignon, MBC Head Coach. It is in honour of Dick (Douglas) Child who was on the committee from 1986 to 2017 and President from 2001 to 2004. Each year it will be allocated to an event, and have the winning club engraved on its base. Well worth competing for! A winner’s tankard from1924 has just been donated by James Waller and was probably won by his grandfather Fred Waller – thank you James. This is the first pint tankard collected by the regatta.

Whether it’s your first regatta or you are a returning champion, we aim to make our regatta a friendly place where the competition stays on the water and friends and families can enjoy a weekend by the river.

The Mayor of Elmbridge, is coming in the afternoon.
