Pembroke Regatta

Pembroke Regatta is held on the 5th Saturday of Lent Term, Saturday 20th February 2021, and is open to current College VIIIs and College Alumni VIIIs.

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, Elizabeth Bedwell:


Entry details will shortly be sent to clubs' CUCBC email accounts. Entries open on Saturday 6th February and the deadline for entries is Saturday 13th February at 5pm.

We are planning to run Pembroke Regatta 2021 in accordance with government, BR and CUCBC guidance at the time. We hope racing eights will be possible and we will keep everyone updated on our intentions. We ask for your patience while we all wait to find out what will be possible for rowing in Lent term.


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


The lower divisions will take place in the morning, the alumni divisions in the late morning and early afternoon, and the upper divisions in the afternoon. 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 5:30pm. 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.
