Lea R.C. hosts two regattas each year which are open to all comers. The course, at 600m, is an ideal introduction to side-by-side racing for juniors and a good distance for masters and senior crews looking for some one-on-one sprint practice. Water conditions are flat, with only a hint of stream. We offer racing for all, whatever their boat class or experience. There is a towpath running the full length of the course for supporters to watch the racing.

Both regattas are atmospheric and friendly events with the club bar and café open all day. Lea R.C. members also volunteer on our famous cake stall!

Lea Spring Regatta is held on the last Sunday in April.

Lea Autumn Regatta is held on the first Sunday in September.

For more specific information about the next event, the regatta posters can be found on the Regatta page links below.


Competitors’ instructions, maps and safety plans and instructions can be downloaded from our Race & Safety Documents page. The Draw will also posted on this page at least three days prior to the event. Please check for any updates to the Draw before the day of the regatta.


Regatta results are posted on the website as soon as possible after the event. They can be found on the page for that event. Previous regatta results can be found on the Race & Safety Documents page.
