The Northern Rowing Council, with the help of host clubs, runs the Long Distance
Sculling (LDS) series every autumn. We aim to have six competitions over six consecutive
weekends, though poor conditions can intervene.
The LDS series is for sculling boats only - singles, doubles, quads and octuplets
(not all locations). They are open to all age groups and categories. There are prizes
for winning crews in each competition and a Victor Ludorum for clubs over the series
as a whole.
There are associated but independent Small Boats Head (SBH) competitions with sculling
and sweep in the afternoon on four of the six days. Details will be on the individual
host clubs’ web sites, but we’ll post key info like start times plus web links here.
