About the Regatta

For a long time those involved in junior and school rowing have been aware of the need for an event of significant scale for younger age groups in the second part of the summer term but before the Junior British Championships.

We now have the chance to answer this need and we need your help to make it work. Not only do we want your entries but we want your help in running the event.

We wish to run the regatta in the cooperative spirit of the various trials run at junior level and in the spirit of the two BASHER events. In all these cases most of the organisation, marshalling and stewarding on the day is done by the coaches and supporters of the various athletes and crews.

The management and control of the racing will be run by experienced people with the necessary BR qualifications in accordance with the rules of racing and the other requirements of our governing body but we still need a lot of volunteers to help on the day.

We will need to cover three shifts during the day with fifteen people on each shift.


Martin Brandon-Bravo (1932 - 2018) was a President of the ARA and Honorary Life Vice-President of British Rowing. He was a founding member of the NWSC and a great supporter of rowing in Nottingham. He served as MP for Nottingham South and was an Honorary Alderman of Nottinghamshire County Council.

Any profits from the regatta will be available for the support of junior rowers in the UK and will be administered by the Kitchin Society
