VIRTUAL PEMBROKE REGATTA 17-20th February 2021

Due to the current restrictions that have been put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19, this year's Pembroke Regatta will be taking place in a new remote format.

Enter in a team of 4 to the women's, men's or alumni division. Each person in the team will run 1100m and record their time each day. In true regatta style there will be direct competition between pairs of boats, but don't worry if you're beaten on day 1 - there will still be races to be won!

Check out our Instagram and Twitter for more information or email the Regatta Secretary to enter!


The Regatta will use the river between the Green Dragon Footbridge and Grassy Corner. Divisions of races will be run approximately every 30 minutes, from 8:00am to 5:30pm. Non-college crews will be able to row through the course between divisions - please follow the instructions of our marshals. We would appreciate advanced notice by email, and we thank you for your cooperation in this. If you require any more information, please email us.

College crews may also request permission to row through the course, but the number of row-throughs we can allow is limited. Such requests should be made by email, and should specify a preferred time for the row-through.
