Birmingham Regatta 2019

Birmingham Rowing Club is excited to invite you to our annual round robin regatta which takes place over approximately 700m of still water on Saturday, 27 April 2019. You will get plenty of stake boat practice, with multiple races (entries permitted) per crew guaranteed.

The race committee met to discuss the weather forecast this evening and I’m afraid that we have made the decision to cancel Saturday’s regatta. With sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts of 40 mph it would far exceed the limits we would have for our juniors who are familiar with the water. The conditions would not be safe for boating or marshalling.

If you have paid via BROE I will process the refunds for those over the weekend, if you have paid by BACS please can you let me have the details for the refund. We are sorry not to welcome you to the Reservoir this year but best wishes for the rest of the regatta season.

Despite the regatta not happening we would like to thanks our sponsors:

Chris Llewellyn
Sarah Gregory
Ben Wadd
Sean Haughton
Select Payroll Solutions
Investabroad Properties

And to all those who have provided prizes for the regatta raffle (which is still going ahead with the draw on 25th May):
