Shrewsbury Regatta in Shrewsbury

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.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. On Saturday 12 May the Regatta organisers will be delighted to welcome a visit from Di Carrington from Pontesbury and Sharon Magrath from Bayston Hill in Shrewsbury. Di and Sharon are two of the three women who in February became the fastest female crew ever to row the Atlantic. 62 year old Di also became the oldest woman ever to make the crossing.
