Jesus College BC are taking an eight and a four to Thames Ditton Regatta on Sat 16th May (3rd week) and are looking for people to share our trailer. It’s a lovely event, 1k upstream course past Hampton Court Palace, and attracts a good range of clubs and schools. This year they’re running the main eights event as a “Challenge” format rather than straight knockout - crews from Novice to IM2 race each other in a round-robin format, then the top two contest a final (which doesn’t incur BR points) - ideal for college crews whose BR points tend not to reflect their actual speed one way or another. Although there are no points the pots are very nice. It guarantees all entries at least 3 races in either the morning (women) or afternoon (men) division, and you can race Novice eight in the other division or small boats in Nov and IM3. Being a traditionally junior-focused event there’s also a chance to spread the good word about college/Oxford rowing.

Apologies, I have misunderstood the system. Two races are guaranteed in Challenge 8s, three likely. Still a good chance to make sure your crew gets multiple competitive pieces.
