Bewdley Regatta

This is Bewdley Rowing Club’s main annual event. It attracts entries from clubs across the country, and occasionally from abroad.With races every couple of minutes we frequently have around three hundred crews each day. A crew could be a single sculler, double scullers, pairs, fours, quads or eights. Competitor’s ages range from 12 to 70 and Bewdley is one of the biggest and best inland river regattas in the country so competition is stiff.The event is much anticipated by the whole town and is very enjoyable whether you’re interested in rowing, or just want a good day out.

Without our members, we wouldn't be able to provide the guidance, support and emergency funding that we have been able to during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider continuing to support our sport by renewing or purchasing your British Rowing membership today.
