British Rowing Junior Championships returns to Nottingham this July

Nottingham’s National Water Sports Centre will host the British Rowing Junior Championships, presented by Visit Sarasota County, this July

 

The British Rowing Junior Championships, presented by Visit Sarasota County, will return to the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont from Friday, 14 to Sunday, 16 July.

The 2016 Junior Championship event was a huge success, with a record number of crews taking to the water to compete for the honours, with Henley Rowing Club taking the overall Victor Ludorum for the best performing club.

For the first time, J14s took part in a special omnium of events which saw junior rowers tested across 10 different skills, from standing rigger dips to backing down, which made for some exciting competition.

Following a positive response, and having listened to feedback from competitors, coaches, parents, volunteers and spectators at the 2016 event, the J14 omnium will return to the Junior Championships on Friday, 14 July 2017.  The menu of skills and manoeuvrability exercises remains the same in 2017, but fewer skills will be tested on the day. In response to feedback, the J14 coxed squad sculls will also be raced on the Friday, over 1,000 m, with no J14 scratch squads in 2017. Any sculler wishing to race in J14 quads must have competed in the omnium in either a single or a double.

J15, J16 and J18 crews will, once again, race over 2,000 m on the Saturday and Sunday in a combination of time trials and side-by-side racing, with all finals due to be held on Sunday.

To assist coaches with their training schedules and planning, the Notice of Regatta will be published in mid-March with entries due to open in early June.

Follow British Rowing on social media to be the first to hear when the Notice of Regatta has been published and when entries open.
