The British Rowing Championships takes place every year. The event is held at the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont (Nottingham) with occasional championships held at the Strathclyde Country Park. It is a major event for club rowers and some schools also participate, however, because its position in the British Rowing calendar means that it is held when most public schools have ended their year, some of those schools choose not to compete. Events are held for open, women, open junior, women's junior, under 23, lightweight, adaptive and coastal boats.

  • The British Rowing Championships takes place every year. The event is held at the National Water Sports Centre, Holme Pierrepont (Nottingham) with occasional championships held at the Strathclyde Country Park. It is a major event for club rowers and some schools also participate, however, because its position in the British Rowing calendar means that it is held when most public schools have ended their year, some of those schools choose not to compete. Events are held for open, women, open junior, women's junior, under 23, lightweight, adaptive and coastal boats. Each crew member of the first, second and third placed crews in each event receive gold, silver and bronze medals respectively. The club champion in each event (i.e. the highest placed non-composite crew) also receives a wooden club champions plaque to display in their clubhouse. The Championships were inaugurated in 1972 and held at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham, which had only been built the previous year. In 2010 the Regatta adopted the title British Rowing Championships to reflect the change in name of the Amateur Rowing Association to British Rowing. The logo and branding now reflects that of British Rowing. The 40th anniversary of the Championships was celebrated in 2012. Although it has been the practice for the Championships to be held in Scotland at the Strathclyde Country Park every fourth year, the 2014 Championships was held in Nottingham. This was because Scotland hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Rowing Championships at Strathclyde Country Park. Since 2016 the Championships have only been held in Nottingham. (en)
