Norwich Small Boat Head
and the Norfolk Sculls
The Norfolk Long Distance Sculls is traditionally raced in late October over the 5km course from the Waters Edge Pub to the finish at the Railway Bridge adjacent to Whitlingham Great Broad. The race was originally started in 1948 by George Cooper and was the first race of its type in this country. The race attracted a string of top scullers including Olympians, Internationals and National Champions who wanted to race over a longer course. The race has been run every year since.
The next race will be held on October 21st 2023
