Blue-Green Algae 10/06/2016
The lake at the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham, currently has blue-green algae. Illnesses can be caused as a result of swallowing or swimming in algal scum.
Rowers are asked to ensure they wash after coming ashore and wash and dry all equipment. Showers are available in the centre. Access can be provided to the showers at reception. Water hoses are available at the bottom of the Finish Tower and at the boathouse at the finish line end of the lake.

Entries Closed 07/05/2014
Entries have now closed with a huge total of 773 crews, comfortably beating last year’s record of 742!

Unfortunately it will be impossible to fit all of these into the 165 races we can manage in one day's racing and some entries will have to be rejected. We will reject as few crews as possible on a last in, first out, basis to reduce the number of races to that limit.

In principle IM3 entries will be rejected first although we will try to move them up to Championship level before rejecting. We may also have to reject some Novice and Championship entries where individual events are over-subscribed but we will aim to keep this to a minimum.

The draw will take place at 18:00 on Saturday and will be published on this website on Sunday evening.

Please note that there will be no further refunds for crews who now withdraw.

Entries Closed 08/05/2013

Entries have now closed with a massive 742 of them (last year was a record 665).

Championship and then Novice races will take priority though so IM3 entries will be rejected first to reduce the number of races followed by, if necessary, Novice and then Championship entries. We will, however, try to move IM3 crews up to Championship level first before rejecting as outlined in the Championship Rules.


The draw will take place on Saturday and will be published on the website on Sunday evening.


Please note that there will be no further refunds for crews who now withdraw.
