The 2023 series is over and 2024 is here

                 

How to find start orders, times and results online       

             

Start orders, real-time race times (provisional) and full results for LDS and SBH competitions will be available as on-screen html in your browser or as downloadable pdfs and othr formats via go.oar-online.uk. Results will also be posted on this page and at @NorthernRowing on X (formerly Twitter) and at @racing@oar-online.uk on Mastodon. It is hoped other competitions in the region will follow suit.

Series background

 

The Northern Regional 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 each year. All six ran in 2022 but three out of six were cancelled in 2023. Better luck in 2024?

 

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. See the home clubs’ web sites for details of these - links will be above.

 

Getting in touch
