Prize giving will take place straight after the last race. Please return any trophies.

Please note as this event takes place from Weymouth Beach there is no limit in the number of Clubs or gigs attending.

There will be a fee of £10 per gig for launching and trailer storage – these fees will be collected when you register your crews.

Gig Launching
Gigs will be unloaded/loaded from the public slipway in the inner harbour (near the Debenhams store on Commercial Road (DT4 8NG) between 8.00am and 8.45am.

Weymouth members will be on hand to assist in loading/unloading.

You will require a cox’n and rowers to row your gig round to the beach. Please take care on the water as traffic in the harbour can be busy at this time of the year.

There are a few local hazards which must be pointed out :-
• The Town Lifting Bridge – stop if red lights show
• Rowing boat ferries – these cross the harbour just past the Life Boat station and they don’t tend to give way!

Car Parking

There is nearby parking at the Weymouth Pavilion Car Park.

Free water will be available (Bring your own bottle) and we would welcome those attending bringing their own refillable mugs.
