Staines Amateur Regatta 2021

Staines Amateur Regatta is a rowing and sculling regatta dating back to the 1850 taking place on the River Thames in Staines-upon-Thames, annually on the 4th weekend in July. It features competitors from all age groups and abilities.

The event is free for spectators, who enjoy watching the race at the temporary licensed bar. There is an enclosure at the finishing line with BBQ, fresh sandwiches, teas, cakes and ice creams at Silvery Sands, 150metres downstream from the end of Wheatsheaf Lane, Staines-upon-Thames.

The 2021 regatta is due to take place on Saturday 24th July. The exact format for the regatta is still yet to be decided whilst we come out of government restrictions due to Covid-19.
