LDS series background

 

The Northern Rowing Council, with the help of host clubs, runs the Long Distance Sculling (LDS) series every autumn. In 2017 we are to have six events again over six consecutive weekends, as listed below. In 2016 all ran and in generally very good conditions, so fingers crossed for 2017!

 

A new coordinating team for 2017 is in place, based at Durham ARC. Queries about all aspects including entries should now go to lds@nerowing.com. Any questions specifically to do with this page can still go to Colin Percy at  info@nerowing.com.

 

The LDS series each year has events for sculling boats only - singles, doubles and quads (and octs where indicated on the poster). They will be open to all age groups and categories. There are associated SBH (Small Boats Head) events with sweep in the afternoon on four of the six days.
