Shrewsbury Regatta

About

The 2019 Shrewsbury Regatta will take place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May.

The Regatta is one of the oldest events in the rowing calendar, having first been held in 1871. Races will take place on the River Severn in Shrewsbury between English Bridge and the boathouses opposite the Quarry. The organisers expect around 1500 competitors to take part from rowing clubs all over the country. Races will take place roughly every three minutes on both the Saturday and the Sunday and with supporters from the competing clubs cheering the crews on the atmosphere should be full of excitement.

There will be races for 8's, 4's and pairs as well as quad, double and single sculling boats. Competitors will include men, women, juniors and veterans.

Entry to the regatta for spectators will be free of charge and the public will be able to watch the racing from the river banks on both sides of the river. There will be a bar and barbecue as well as other refreshments for all the family.
