REGATTA SPECTATORS

 

Regrettably in this Covid-19 year of 2021, we have withdrawn all spectator facilities.

However the towpath and riverbank are open, and provide a lovely setting for a picnic – and there will be racing going by to watch. If you do come along, please maintain social distancing. Face coverings are not required as you will be completely out in the open.

If you wish you can walk ten minutes up the river to see the excitement of the start. The Saturday start is opposite Aquarius Sailing Club at Cherry Orchard Road, and the Finish is just past the end of Platts Eyot. The race course on Saturday is 850m long and takes about 3 minutes for each race. On Sunday the course is shortened to 500m.

Next year we hope to be back to normal, and be providing food, drink, cover and music.
