Great Tyne Row - Saturday 27 August 2016



The Great Tyne Row is a 25 km challenge row with an element of racing (depending on how seriously you take it). It ran for the sixth time in 2016. It is non-profit-making.

Each year there are prizes for fastest boat in various categories, but with an emphasis on fun, with awards also for the best dressed crew and best decorated boat.


Numbers have risen from 11 in year one to 40 in 2015, though back down to 26 in 2016. A wide range of sliding seat and fixed seat boats enter, from doubles through a triple one year and into fours and quads.


You can find information on the the previous years here: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015. The stand-alone web site for the Great Tyne Row at www.greattynerow.com has more information on past winners, etc and is now the main place to look for info for the event each year. However, we have mirrored key info here in case that site goes down.
