Pembroke Regatta

Pembroke Regatta is held on the 4th Saturday of Lent Term, Saturday 18th February 2017, and is open to current College VIIIs and College Alumni VIIIs. This is the first year it is being held on the 4th Saturday of Lent Term, due to a clash with the Winter Head. It will from now on always be held on this date.

Races are held between the Stump at the end of the Long Reach and Peters Posts. The length of this course is roughly 1100m. Racing is side-by-side in the form of a knock-out competition.

The Rules of the Regatta are available here.

Any enquiries should be emailed to the Regatta Secretary, Michael Droogleever:


Entry details will shortly be sent to clubs' CUCBC email accounts. Entries open on Saturday 23rd January and the deadline for entries is Saturday 30th January at 5pm.


As in previous years, entries from college alumni VIIIs are warmly welcomed. Any enquiries should be directed to us by email.


The women's divisions will be taking place in the morning, with the Alumni Women's division last before the lunch break. The men's divisions will be taking place in the afternoon after the lunch break, with the Alumni Men's division first after the lunch break. These timings are subject to change.


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 5:00pm. Non-college crews will be able to row through the course between divisions please follow the instructions of our marshals. 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 (not before 11:00am).
