Home International Regatta

2017 Home International Regatta

Strathclyde Park is the venue for the 2017 Home International Regatta, an annual challenge match between Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales.  Racing starts at 10.30am and spectating is free.

Spectators are guaranteed some exciting rowing action on the water at Strathclyde Country Park in North Lanarkshire.  The Home International Regatta has taken place annually for over 50 years.  Always competitive for some it’s the pinnacle of their rowing career, for others a first step on the road to World and Olympic Championships.

How the competition works: Challenge Trophies will be awarded to the teams  scoring the highest total in each relevant match. In the case of a tie, the match will be awarded to the country scoring the highest number of 1st places.

Men – News of the World Cup.  Women – The County Renfrew Rosebowl.  Junior Men – The Duncan Trophy.  Junior Women – The Irish Travel Agency Cup.

Points are scored as follows.  4 boat events: 4, 3, 2, 1 ~ 3 boat events: 3, 2, 1 ~ 2 boat events: 3, 2 ~ 1 boat entered: 3 (no medal).  No points are scored by a crew that is disqualified or that fails to complete the course by reason of their own accident. Where there is a dead-heat, crews will share the points for the places involved (e.g. equal 1st means 3.5 points each).

Racing takes place from 10.30am to 4.20pm.  A full timetable of today’s racing can be viewed via the Home International Regatta website.

The ETU 2018 European Championships (part of a huge festival of sport – Glasgow 2018 – taking place in Scotland in August 2018) will also be held at Strathclyde Park making today’s event is a great opportunity to watch some rowing on what is largely the same course.

Racing starts at 10.30am
