Upcoming Events

Carrow Cup


The Carrow Cup is a unique event where crews race down the narrow River Wensum through the City of Norwich starting at Bishop Bridge, past the Railway Station and the Norwich City Football Stadium before widening out as the river leaves the city and enters the countryside.

The Carrow Cup is believed to be the oldest rowing trophy in the country having first been raced in 1813. 

This is a unique event as the regatta offers both racing for regular fine boats from doubles & pairs through to quads and coxed fours as well as traditional whale boat racing

The 2022 race will be held in Saturday December 3rd
