Seniors and Senior Girls Events and Regattas

This list is to give you a general idea of the events that you are likely to attend over the course of the year. Your coaches will give you specific dates and times in plenty of time for the events as the year progresses but please make a note of these general times and try to keep the weekends free where possible. The events list is provisional and there is no guarantee that we will attend and events can be affected by weather and river conditions.
