Sprint Regatta – Sunday 8th July

Posted In : Latest News

Due to the Olympic Torch Relay. Major traffic restrictions will be in place on the day – the Town Bridge and the Embankment will close at 06.00. Longholme Way, Barkers Lane and Newnham Ave will close at 09.00 until approx 11.00. Only towing vehicles or cars carrying boats will be allowed access to the trailer park (Longholme). Road closures from 0730 will make parking elsewhere difficult so early arrival is paramount.

The draw will be published here on the evening of Tuesday 3rd July.

Come & compete in the only Regatta in the country that will include the Olympic Torch Relay – starting on the Embankment at 10:12.
*** There will be a pause in racing from 09:45 to 11:00 to accommodate this. ***

We therefore advise all clubs to plan to get trailers in for 07:30 at the latest.
