Record entry for 2014 regatta

Record entry for the South Wests top rowing regatta at Exeter Quay on 12 July 2014


A record number of rowers from across the south west will be competing on Saturday 12 July at the annual Exeter Regatta, to help celebrate Exeter Rowing Clubs 150 anniversary


Paul Wilson Exeter Regatta Chairman said

This year we have more entries than we have ever seen, it reflects just how popular rowing is across the south west. At the event we have especially strong crews in mens and ladies fours and the sculls including from Exeter Anna Newton who has trialled for the GB squad and Ray Lowry, an amputee from the marines who is on a fast track pathway to the Para Olympics.



Spectators are guaranteed to see some great competition throughout the day. 2014 is also a special year for the regatta as Exeter Rowing Club are celebrating their 150 anniversary. We will have more races than ever and free painting activities for children with a regatta theme.  In addition the rowing club are also celebrating at Henley Royal Regatta  with a row past on Saturday with a mixed Exeter crew aged from 17-70.”


Mike Wills, Managing Director of Pathfinder Homes said
'The Regatta at Exeter Quay is a great day out for the family and this year is a very special occasion because of the anniversary. Parents and youngsters can be inspired by the action and families can also relax in the cafes and bars.



Pathfinder is the main sponsor of this fantastic event, and we will also be in attendance at the Regatta with one of our beautiful lodges on show. So if you are in the area, make sure to come down for a day full of excitement.


Good luck to all the competing clubs in 2014

Record entry for the Regatta this Saturday


We have a record entry of competitors for Exeter rowing Regatta at Exeter Quay this Saturday – 13 July

Its ten years since we had an entry this large with 156 races scheduled, and it looks like this is part of the follow on from London 2012, in which GB had some outstanding successes in Rowing from the Mens’ and Womens’ teams.  

We have had a couple of last minute adjustments to our programme – following success of mens and womens novice crews from Totnes moving up to Senior C. The umpires will be briefed on Saturday morning at 9:30 at the finish line/control centre.

All the final preparations for the regatta are being made today and racing starts at 10:30 am.

Good luck to the 14 competing clubs
