Champs Junior Sculling Head - Saturday 16th March 2024

Published on 6 February 2024 at 07:37

DIVISIONS Div 1: 10:30 | Div 2: 12:15 | Div 3: 14:00.


There will be sufficient time between divisions to allow crews to double-up, and will permit boat sharing across divisions.

The course runs 1450m upstream from The Plough pub at Fen Ditton to the site of the old Penny Ferry pub at Chesterton.

The race will use a rolling start on the Plough Reach. There is excellent towpath access along the whole course, which makes it an ideal event for juniors. Bring a bike or your trainers and you will be metres away from your scullers!

Please note – doubling up is at the discretion of parents/coaches (please take account of the age/experience/stamina of the rowers when considering doubling up)

We recommend that where possible single sculls and double sculls (particularly J16-18)  select divisions 1 and 2 as follows: Division 1 Men’s 1X and Women’s 2X-Division 2 Men’s 2X and Women’s 1X.  Quads may select any division.  These are recommendations and are not obligatory, in order to provide competing clubs with complete flexibility for boat sharing etc. but also giving the opportunity to compete in similar conditions with your opposition.
