Regatta/Water Event, Sat 27 - Sun 28 Jun 2020

Windermere Row

Windermere Row


Gather your crew and take on either a 10-mile or 21-mile row, in a 4 or 6 person rowing boat, on Lake Windermere. Since 1998, the event has raised over £1.13 million; be part of the 2020 row and help make it the best one yet.

Teams of varying sizes (and abilities!) take to the Lake, come rain or shine, and race their way past the checkpoints to victory. Surrounded by the most beautiful Lake District scenery, and with fancy dress and playful camaraderie strongly encouraged, this event has been attracting veteran captains and novice first mates for over 35 years.

This year, the 10-mile row will take place predominantly on the Saturday 27th June and the 21-mile row will take place on Sunday 28th June. There will be the possibility to row the 10-mile route on the Sunday but these places will be prioritised to those wanting to row the 21-mile route.

Registration is £10 per team member in order to secure the boat once booking opens, and all team members will be required to raise a minimum of £90 sponsorship. Once you have reserved your boat, you have 2 weeks to make the payment for registration. Please note, if we have not received your payment within 2 weeks of registration, your reservation will be cancelled.

Boat sizes are up to 4 people and up to 6 people, but availability is limited so they are reserved on a first come, first served basis. We recommend no less than 3 people in a 4 person boat and no less than 5 people in a 6 person boat.

To reserve your boat and for more information, please visit our website or contact Lucy on 0113 218 5580.
