The Sudbury Regatta takes place on the first Saturday of August each year.
The 650m Rowing course is raced upstream from a stake boat start along a course characterised by some challenging bends. One of the highlights of the regatta is the sprint eights event, racing for hip-flasks along the last and straighter 350m.
We provide state of the art spectator facilities, particularly in the stadium section of the course with wonderful home-baked cakes, burgers, a hog roast, ice cream and locally brewed beer.
Sudbury Rowing Club will again this year try to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used at the Regatta. Please bring a reusable bottle or cup. Water refills will be available, and free. Plastic cups can be purchased at 50p per cup, and all monies from their sale goes to charity.
