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.
Here are the dates we had in 2021. The poster we used is accessible at the foot of
this page - click on the images .
