The 2024 (101st edition) Twickenham Regatta took place over the bank holiday weekend where clubs from across the southeast enjoyed a days racing in the sunshine. There were a number of changes this year with the course being both shortened to 850m and racing taking place in an upstream direction. The new finish line allowed for better views of the full course with the magnificent Richmond Hill as a backdrop. Twickenham tied with Kingston Rowing Club with six wins apiece with local MP Munira Wilson on hand to present prizes. Also, congratulations to Mortlake Anglian & Alpha, Thames, Sons of Thames, Vesta, Putney, Reading, Bentham, Molesey, Aurial Kensington, Popular & Blackwall, TSS and Maidstone who all picked up 'pots'. Thankyou to all competitors and volunteers who helped make this years regatta such a success. We look forward to seeing you all again on the 24th May 2025

HISTORY OF THE REGATTA

Twickenham Regatta was founded as the Richmond and Twickenham Amateur Regatta in 1923. There had been ‘Twickenham’ regattas going back to the founding of Twickenham Rowing Club in 1860 but these were in the nature of invitation events.

 

In 1952 Richmond Regatta was founded to run a Coronation event and thereafter, Twickenham and Richmond regattas ran as separate events.

In its history, the course at Twickenham Regatta has varied in both direction and length. The current course is 850m long and runs upstream with the start line near Glovers Island and the finish line adjacent to Ham House Car Park.

 

Twickenham Regatta expects normally in excess of 100 races, and is supported both by local clubs and many further afield.

 

Racing is from stakeboats with pursuit umpire launches.

 

Twickenham Regatta is a friendly event and we pride ourselves on flexibility. The course is on a very picturesque part of the Thames (the view from Richmond Hill looking up the course is one of the very few views in the UK which is protected by an Act of Parliament).
