Coate Water Regatta is a new event especially for those new to the sport. The test event took place on Swindon’s Coate Water on the second Saturday of September, 2013. Clubs from within the region were invited to put forward novice rowers and scullers who had been rowing for less than one year. For many this was their first taste of competitive rowing.
The regatta was a fantastic success but unfortunately in summer months we have suffered from weeds growing up from the lake bottom and limiting the rowable area. We are still keen to run an event and are looking into alternative dates whilst also sseking help from our more experienced neighbours.
