Home International Regatta 2020

Posted: 9 April, 2020

HIRlogoIt is with great regret that the General Management Committee of the Home International Regatta have decided that HIR 2020 will be cancelled due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus pandemic.

The next Home International Regatta will take place on 24th July 2021 and will be hosted by Wales.

Uppermost in our minds has been the health and safety of all those who come together to make the regatta happen, the athletes, coaches, organisers, officials and spectators as well as our broader responsibility to society's efforts to tackle this global challenge to our way of life. Although the GMC considered postponing the event until the autumn, this threw up many insurmountable challenges and coupled with the current uncertainty of time scales going forward, meant that this was not an option.

The GMC would like to empathise with the inevitable disappointment of our many supporters, but assure you that we are already planning for HIR 2021 and look forward to launching our new exciting racing format as planned.

New Spring Regatta Entry System

Scottish Rowing will be using a new system for race entries for the upcoming Spring Regatta.  The system uses a platform developed by Playwaze which has been specifically tailored for Scottish Rowing to be used for rowing events.

The new system will provide a consistent, user-friendly, way to make your entries and provides a number of payment options.

As with the previous entry system, clubs who wish to race at Spring Regatta will need to set up at least one administrator on the new system.  Our aim is to have all admins set up prior to Spring Regatta entries opening on the 16th March and we would like to invite all clubs planning to enter to contact us at entries@scottish-rowing.org.uk.

When you contact us, we will set up your administrator account and offer you an opportunity to book a time for some 1-2-1 training and support.
