Series background


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.

Please note entries for each individual LDS event close at 3.00pm on the Sunday, three weeks beforehand . Details of each event ,with documents to download, will appear in its own section below when ready. Berwick will be first very shortly.


2021 programme


Here are the dates for 2021. The poster is out now - see above). The format at each venue will be very similar to that in 2019 - see the 2019 LDS archive page here. Timings at Berwick and South Hylton may be different from 2019 due to tides. The series did not run in 2020 due to Covid.
