Oxford City Royal Regatta

Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th August, 2018

Thank you to everyone who came and raced at the weekend.  We look forward to seeing you all again in 2018 - dates are Sat 18th and Sun 19th Aug.


The regatta has been running consistently on the Isis river in Oxford since 1841 with only occasional breaks due to war and was originally organised by one of the clubs which formed the City of Oxford RC.


We regularly receive around 500 entries over the two days with crews competing in all boat types and thousands of spectators joining us both at our clubhouse and at the regatta village site at Longbridges, located next to the Finish for both the 1000m and 500m courses.


Taking place on 18th and 19th August, the 2018 regatta will feature a full programme of British Rowing open events with highly competitive racing for men, women, juniors and mixed crews.


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



We again used the EasyRegatta system for the 2017 event - follow the links on the Draw and Results page for more details.
