Junior Inter-Regional Regatta

The Junior Inter-Regional Regatta will take place on Saturday, 27 April at Peterborough City Rowing Club


The Junior Inter-Regional Regatta (JIRR) is a competitive but fun event for junior rowers aged between 14 and 16, giving them the opportunity to represent their region at the start of the international pathway.  The twelve JIRR Teams are based on the British Rowing Regions with the Thames Region split into its three sub-regions and Wales competing with WAGS.

For 2019, the event is moving from its traditional home in Nottingham to Peterborough, where the racing will be across four lanes over 1,000m.

More than 900 competitors, from schools and junior clubs, will race in 24 different categories. The format of the competition allocates points to all finishing crews with the highest placed crews contributing the most points towards their regional total, with an overall Victor Ludorum awarded to the region with the points.

Individual gold, silver or bronze medals will be awarded respectively to the first, second and third fastest three crews in the A Final of each event competing for the three Victor Ludorum prizes.

  • The Di Ellis Shield for the overall Victor Ludorum
  • The Margaret Marshall Cup for the Victor Ludorum for Junior Women’s events
  • The Ann & Brian Colborne Cup for the Victor Ludorum for Junior Mens’ events

The Martin Humphrys JP Cup will be awarded to the highest placed Team across all events, with only those Teams that in the previous year’s Regatta were placed overall between 7th and 12th inclusive being eligible for this cup.

In addition to the Victor Ludorum cups there are also two other presentation cups:

  • The Nigel Smith Claret Jug, which will be presented to the crew winning the J16 8o A Final
  • The CUWBC Rose Bowl, which will be presented to the crew winning the WJ16 8o A Final
