The first Milton Keynes Regatta was held in 2010 and has run every year since then (except for 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic). Starting small, as we found our way, we are gradually expanding the size of the event, with more clubs and races. Details on this year's event can be found here with the results from earlier years below.
The event is run over a 500 metre course on Caldecotte South Lake. The racing line runs from the stake boat start by the road bridge in a straight line to finish opposite the club house. Unusually for a rowing regatta, the whole course is visible from the club house.
In keeping with Milton Keynes Rowing Club's friendly outlook, we try to make this a relaxed, low key event with the emphasis on everyone enjoying themselves. Certainly, the feedback we have had from our visiting clubs has been very positive!
As well as the racing we also provide refreshments, including barbecue, cakes and drinks. These are available all day.
This Year's Regatta
With great disappointment and regret, the decision has been taken to cancel this years’ regatta. It would be a huge challenge to run without compromising the standard of the event and the safety of club members, volunteers and visitors. The decision is in line with BR having cancelled all regattas up to 31st August, and most of those in September having been cancelled by individual clubs.
