Christchurch Regatta

Late each November, novice rowers from every college boat club in Oxford compete in Christ Church Regatta. The culmination of the novice training season, this regatta is organised by Christ Church Boat Club, and provides a level playing field for rowers who have never before competed. Boats of eight rowers and a cox race in a side-by-side tournament format over 500 to 750m down the Isis stretch of the river Thames.
