Oxford City Royal Regatta

Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August, 2015

The Oxford City Royal Regatta is an historic and popular regatta held on the Isis - a beautiful stretch of the River Thames, and the scene of centuries of rowing history.

The Regatta is organized annually by the City of Oxford Rowing Club. Racing is over a 1000m course on Saturday and a 500m sprint on Sunday. Several hundred competitors take part in a range of events including British Rowing events (for Juniors, Novices, Seniors and Masters) and mixed crew events.

If you have any queries relating to entries please contact the Entries Secretary Chris Thomson

BROE is now open for entries for both the Saturday Regatta and the Sunday Sprint events and will close at 6pm on Wednesday 5th August 2015.  Please note that each day has a separate line on the 'Select Competition Meeting' menu on BROE, so please ensure you select the correct day before submitting your entry.


New events for 2015 include IM3, Novice and Mixed coxed fours, plus a change to the invitation Quart Sprint Eights on the Sunday with now a mixed crew event.
