Staines Amateur Regatta is a rowing and sculling regatta dating back to the 1851 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.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 regatta was held on Saturday 24th July on the usual course. The format of the regatta has changed slightly to previous years so that we can minimise contact on the day – see the common “wave” format in the Events Offered section below.
The 2022 regatta is planned to go ahead as usual on Saturday 23rd July 2022. The exact event details will be confirmed in the coming months – for now the details below remain as for last years regatta.
