Safety and Organisation

We ask that all competitors and coxes have read the Safety and Organisation Plan which covers all aspects of the course, batch system and safety.

Leicester Regatta is held under the Rules of British Rowing and the British Rowing Rules of Racing will apply.  Row Safe’ A Guide to Safe Practice in Rowing will apply.

Due to the width of the canal the Regatta runs under a batch system. A batch of 6 to 10 races is held every 30 minutes with Competitors boating 30 minutes beforehand and marshalled above the finish line. After the previous batch has finished the crews then proceed up past the start, turn and are marshalled with their opposition. During the batch crews are started at roughly 2 minute intervals.

Secure on-site overnight trailer parking available.
