Entries have now closed for Bradford Amateur Rowing Club’s unique invitational Annual Veterans Regatta when we invite clubs across the North to send their Veteran crews (competitors over 32 years old) and all abilities to enjoy a day of traditional scratch racing in Fours and Quads over a 250 meter sprint course.
Crews are chosen by ballot to mix up clubs, experience and gender to introduce competitors to a new fun experience as part of this knockout competition.
On the day registration gives the competitors a crew number so they then have to find their fellow crew members sort out seat order and any tactics. Coxswains are provided by BARC.
The day culminates with an VIII’s 500 meter sprint between a Red Rose crew and a White Rose crew with names being pulled from a hat on the day to win the Peter Finney Trophy.
A traditional Bradford curry dinner with beer finishes the evening in BARC’s unique style. The event will be held on 23rd April 2022.
