2020 Rowing Calendar

Page created 11 Feb 2017, last updated 27 Dec 2020.
The information here is unofficial. If, for the event you are looking at, there are no links here to the 2020 information, it may perhaps be worth trying last year's link (if there is one) from the 2019 calendar.  See also the British Rowing calendar.

For those imminent events which have already considered the effects of coronavirus I have updated the entries here accordingly, but it can be assumed that each organising committee for events further away will be considering the situation as time goes by and taking the appropriate decision in due course. BR had strongly advised that no competitions should run until 30 June, subsequently affiliated competition suspended until 31 July, & then until at least the end of August, & then until the end of September. A number of events would consider rearranging to later in the year if this were practicable.
Now updated advice (version 7) including possible limited local competition in September, & open competition from 10 Oct if can be organised in a COVID-secure manner. Then BR awaiting details from Government about restrictions during November lockdown, but interim update 3rd Nov, then further update 5th Nov, & subsequent version 8.1 advice, then version 8.2 to address post-lockdown with 3 tiers, & then to version 8.3 to allow for Christmas bubbles.
