2017 event

Tyne Regatta has an earlier slot this year, with tides suitable and a free date on Saturday 6 May 2017. The programme is similar to last year, but with a slightly wider range of events as we don't have a VIP clubhouse opening to deal with! 

The poster was issued on 12 April 2017 and is downloadable below. BROE is open now and will close at 6.00pm on Saturday 29 April 2017. The draw should be out the following monday night. Please do not pay until entry confirmed formally via a BROE email.

Racing will be over 1200m (conditions allowing) for senior eights, fours and quads and 800m for other events. Divs 1 &2 will be rowed upstream to the club. Div 3 may be rowed downstream, depending on timing in relation to the turning tide.

In the evening all club members, participants and spectators are welcome to attend an informal ceilidh, starting at 7.00pm, with dancing to the Flying Toad Band. There will be a voluntary contribution on the door.


Enquiries should be directed to the Colin Percy, by email at or if urgent on mobile 07985 003304.
