Facilities in 2021


Availability of refreshment in 2021 will be limited and apart from provision at Durham ARC (governed by their own local COVID-19 rules).  It would be advisable if competitors brought their own water and water bottles. Refreshments will be available at Durham ARC, outside at their Café/Beer Garden.  Rules for ordering and being seated at tables and table service will apply all weekend.  Competitors should be aware that there is a cashless system for ordering and should come prepared if they wish to avail themselves of refreshments.

Disabled access

Blue badge parking is available on the track adjacent to Durham ARC and should be accessed via the Site Vehicle Access route.


Trailer Toilets will be available for competitors and helpers/volunteers in the car park at Durham ARC.  These will be cleaned throughout the regatta and fully serviced between Saturday/Sunday.  Please follow any notices with regard to social distancing and use of the toilets that may be posted at the entrance.
