The club competes in many races annually across the North of England area and further afield. The club also hosts two regattas a year in June and September.

War of the Roses


Bradford’s unique invitational Annual Veterans Regatta when we invite clubs from across the North to send their Master’s crews of all ages and abilities to enjoy a day of traditional scratch racing in Fours and Quads. Crews are chosen by ballot to mix up club members and introduce competitors to a new fun, experience as part of this knockout competition. The day culminates with an Eight’s sprint between a Red Rose crew and a White Rose crew with names being pulled from a hat to win the Peter Finney Trophy. A traditional Bradford curry dinner with beer finishes the evening in BARC’s unique style.
The 2024 event will be held on Saturday, April, 20. For more details see links below:
