Oxford City Royal Regatta

Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August, 2017

Event details for the 2017 Regatta and Sprint have been updated on the Events Offered page.  Entries will open on BROE on Saturday 15th July and close on Sunday 6th August at 22:00hrs.


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 CORC.


We expect this year to be one of our biggest events ever, with around 500 crews competing over the regatta weekend 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 19th and 20th August 2017, the regatta features 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
