Head 7 Mar 2020

On Saturday 7 March, Lakeland Rowing Club will make history by hosting the first major rowing competition on Derwentwater in 150 years – and we would love you to be involved.

 

Derwentwater, cradled between the iconic Catbells fell, Walla Crag and the dramatic Jaws of Borrowdale, is one of the UK’s most stunning stretches of water, while the market town of Keswick, with its vibrant cafés and restaurants and excellent shops, is a fabulous place to spend the weekend.

 

The inaugural Derwentwater Head is open to school, college, university and adult rowing clubs from across the UK, with up to 150 quads, fours and eights boating from Keswick foreshore to race the 3km course.

 

So why not bring your family and friends to the beating heart of the Lake District World Heritage Site and make a mini break of it? Stay locally (we can help you find accommodation), compete on the Saturday, and join us for a social row or a walk around the lake or over the fells on Sunday.

 

Kevin Corkar, of Tyne United Rowing Club, who took part in our trial event in November, said: “The conditions and the course were excellent and we’re planning to come back in March. You’ll not see sights like this elsewhere in the country – it’s second to none.”

 

If you would like to take part in the inaugural Derwentwater Head, entries are open on the BROE. They close at noon on Monday 24th February, so don't delay - enter today! Feel free to drop us a line to events@lakelandrowingclub.com to register interest and we’ll let you know when entries open.

 

Coxes will be weighed at crew registration. In the event of cancellation, entry fees will be refunded once costs have been calculated and deducted

 

If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, we’d also love to hear from you – sponsorship packages start at a few hundred pounds.
