Events you could have entered

We kept it simple and there were three separate events for singles only:
  • 250m short sprint on an ergo
  • 2km run
  • 750m long sprint on an ergo
Categories were J14, J15, J16, J18, Senior, Masters, Parents (and other non-rowers) for both Open and Women's categories. Masters' ages were taken into account and prizes given for each relevant standard age group.


We had a brilliant 185 entries in all. Click on an image above to get the list of winners in each category for each event. All competitors' times to follow asap.

Competitors asked for help in study

Katharine Sparks at Birmingham Uni has asked if anyone competing in the Tyne ARC Virtual Regatta this weekend (or indeed anyone else who fulfils the requitrements) can help her in her studies:

"Hello fellow rowers, I need your help! If you're 16 and over, have rowed competitively for a year and have competed in the last 16 months, please can you complete my online PhD study: . I am investing the thoughts, feelings, and mindsets of rowers during different competitive scenarios and exploring the possible ways/techniques of preventing detrimental thought patterns.

In return for your help, you will be sent the results and entered into a prize draw to have the chance of winning £50, £50 or £100 amazon vouchers (please follow the instructions at the end of the survey). Thank you"

Main regatta cancelled due to COVID-19

Tyne Regatta was cancelled in 2019 due to lack of entries - see archive page here. Due to the Coronavirus, planning for the 2020 event was put on hold in March and the event was cancelled in early April due to government and Britsh Rowing restrictions.

Planning for 2021 starts now! As usual we would welcome ideas for the event, as we do struggle to put together an attractive programme on our big tidal river amidst everything else that is happening at that time in the summer regatta season.
