Race Order : Juniors

Prize giving will take place straight after the last race.
Please note as this event takes place from Weymouth Beach there is no limit in the number of Clubs or gigs attending.
There will be a fee of £10 per gig for launching and trailer storage - these fees will be collected when you register your crews.
Gigs will be unloaded/loaded from the public slipway in the inner harbour (near the Debenhams store on Commercial Road (DT4 8NG) between 8.30am and 9:30am.
Weymouth members will be on hand to assist in loading/unloading.
You will require a cox’n and rowers to row your gig round to the beach. Please take care on the water as traffic in the harbour can be busy at this time of the year.
There are a few local hazards which must be pointed out :-
• The Town Lifting Bridge – stop if red lights show
• Rowing boat ferries – these cross the harbour just past the Life Boat station and they don’t tend to give way!
There is parking at the Weymouth Pavilion Car Park. A concessionary fee has been negotiated with the local Council for rowers and all attending Weymouth Regatta – there will be a club member near the car park with the tickets for you to purchase (do not use the ticket machine).
If you arrive late and there is not a club member at the car park, you will be able to get a ticket in the main marquee (ask the ladies at the tea urn!).
