Boat Identification for overseas crews

The Thames Regional Rowing Council (TRRC) has issued a reminder to overseas clubs about boat identification.

All overseas clubs wishing to compete or train on the Thames (including upper  Thames) must display an ARA identification code on their boats.  Go to the TRRC website for the full notice.


TRRC are also asking Regatta organisers to ensure that overseas crews taking part in their events are aware of this requirement.

A list of all club codes for ARA affiliated events is available at

Sarah Leys is the contact at the ARA if clubs have any queries.
