Lakeland Rowing Club is delighted to be hosting its first ever-rowing racing events, to be known as The Derwentwater Head to be held on Derwentwater, in the North Lakes.
Our first event, a limited entry invitation only Head Race will be on Saturday 23rd November 2019. This event will be sponsored thanks to the support of Inovica.com
The second event a British Rowing listed open event is to be held on Saturday 7th March 2020.
These Head races, with a course length of 3000m will take place on Derwentwater, starting at the Southern end of the lake with the finish line near the Keswick Foreshore and Crow Park. Derwentwater, often refereed to as the Queen of the Lakes, and it's the surrounding fells will make a spectacular venue for both rowers and spectators alike and we will be encouraging as many local residents and visitors to watch the racing as the crews race past
Friars Crag towards the finish line. The race HQ will be based on Crow Park where crews will be setting up their racing boats and we will ensure that the public has full access to meet the crews before and after racing.
Lakeland Rowing Club would like to thank our event sponsor Inovica.com and
all our event business partners including:-

Keswick Town Council
Keswick Launch Company
Derwent Water Marina
