National Schools’ Regatta are really excited to announce a new initiative for 2019 – THE BEST MARQUEE COMPETITION.
NSR regular, High Performance Parenting will be sponsoring the competition as well as providing prizes and assisting in the judging.
There’s no need for schools and clubs to enter, ALL marquees, big and small, will be judged on Saturday lunchtime and prizes will be awarded that evening.
The judges will not be looking at who has the biggest marquee or the biggest budget, but rather each school or club marquee will be judged on the following criteria:
- A friendly and welcoming environment where new parents feel as supported and confident as established parents.
- Good zoning so that parents, coaches and athletes are all able to fulfil their roles, without treading on each other’s toes.
- A proud display of school colours, emblems and ethos.
- Examples of good nutrition, hydration and shade for athletes to be able to do their best.
- Good sharing of information e.g. programmes and results shared, available or displayed.
- Examples of care for the environment.
- Attention to detail, the little touches that make the difference.
NSR and High Performance Parenting are very aware that parents and supporters groups put a huge amount of time, organisation and effort into their marquees but they are often the unsung heroes of the event. We want to highlight the work of the parents and recognise that hard work.
There will be one WINNER of the BEST MARQUEE 2019 and various runners up. The total prize value of over £500, includes discounts to HPP workshops, useful resources for parents and a whole host of other goodies.
We look forward to seeing you in your marquees in a few weeks time!Read More

NSR provides an opportunity for national and local companies, rowing equipment providers and university boat clubs to engage with nearly 5000 competitors aged 13 to 18 and thousands of supporters.

Become part of our 3 day Sales Destination Rowing and Exercise Expo within our dedicated exhibition and lakeside merchandise zone.
Bring your company closer to the British junior rowing community and develop your network.
At NSR we are committed to encouraging young people to enjoy rowing and physical activity beyond school.
NSR is the only regatta in the UK to host a Campus Zone where students from University Boat Clubs meet and engage with young people. They talk though the pathway rowing can provide to higher education and scholarships and some universities.
Employers also recognise the ‘soft skills’ required to be a successful rower, such as time management, communication and teamwork. The skills are essential for success in the workplace too!
The NSR Race Programmes are a memento of a wonderful weekend of racing! Our competitors and spectators will buy it, read it and take it home. Programmes will be shared with family and friends. Promote your message within the wider rowing community. When you advertise with NSR, you can be safe in the knowledge that your company will be highly visible within the rowing market.
Take your place now and become a much valued NSR Partner.Read More

Thanks to all your efforts at NSR18, we are delighted to announce that we are one of the top three finalists for the inaugural World Rowing Award for Sustainability!
This Award is the latest initiative in FISA’s long history of commitment to rowing practices that work towards protecting the natural environment that rowers value so highly and on which the sport depends.
Over 1,000 public submissions were judged by World Rowing’s expert nominations panel, with finalists decided by the FISA Executive Committee. They were impressed by the huge strides you helped us take towards our goal of being a single-use plastic free event and, ultimately, follow the 2012 Olympic legacy of zero waste to landfill.
Your support of the NSR Waste Reduction and Recycling initiative #PushingforaCLeanSweep resulted in:
- an overall reduction of rubbish sent to landfill of 43%
- three skips of rubbish sorted for recycling rather than landfill
- nine 1200 litre tanks of water provided by sponsor Charles Stanley drunk dry
- saving the equivalent of 25,000 single-use plastic bottles
We are very much the ‘little fish’ in this particular pond which makes your achievement even more impressive.
Up against us are:
The Head of the Schuylkill Regatta, USA with 9,000 rowers and 30,000 supporters. In their third year of their Zero Waste and Litter Regatta initiative, they have the support of the 12 clubs of Schuylkill Navy’s River Stewards Committee; the Parks and Recreation and Streets Departments of the City of Philadelphia; the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and the Philadelphia Water Department who provided 20 staff from their Customer Information Unit to help distribute bottles and educate the public last year!
Rowing New Zealand, who have been awarded an enormous $400,000 grant from the Waikato River Authority, for restoration and preservation projects around Lake Karapiro. The lake, home to Rowing NZ is also the venue for, among many other events, the Maadi Cup, the NZ equivalent to NSR.
By comparison, the National Schools’ Regatta is a not-for-profit event, run by a small committee of volunteers as part of a charitable trust. All money raised is put towards the running of the regatta and to help UK rowing clubs with their projects for junior rowers.
The results will be announced on November 23rd at an Awards’ dinner being held as part of the 2018 World Rowing Sports Medicine, Science and Coaches Conference, and 2018 FISA National Federations Conference in Berlin. Fingers crossed!
Over the coming months, we will be announcing how we plan to build on the success of the 2018 NSR Waste and Recycling Campaign. We learned a great deal by talking to you during the Regatta and would welcome you to contact us with any ideas you have to help us continue to improve the sustainability of NSR and British rowing.Read More
