2020 Regatta Cancelled

Reading Amateur Regatta 2020 - CANCELLED

April 2020

Dear Rower/Supporter of Reading Amateur Regatta,

You will not be surprised to hear that Reading Amateur Regatta 2020 has been cancelled. As you are probably aware, British Rowing has suspended all rowing events until the end of June 2020. The committee fully supports the action that British Rowing has taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

We will really miss seeing the rowers, supporters and volunteers on 'our' stretch of The Thames this June. The year has already been a difficult one for the rowing community, given the high flow rates and flooding in the first three months. However, we know that many families will be going through a far more difficult time at the moment and so, when the time is right, we look forward to seeing the boats back on the water again.

Reading Amateur Regatta has been running since 1842 and has always supported the rowing community, just as that rowing community has always supported it. We are planning to run the 2021 Reading Amateur Regatta on 12th and 13th June and hope by then that life will be back to normal.

We would be delighted if you will be able to join us on 'our' stretch of the Thames for Reading Amateur Regatta 2021.

Please take care and stay safe.

The Committee of Reading Amateur Regatta
