If you have any major concerns over the draw please let me know. A Final Draw will be published on Thursday evening - after this time any queries will need to be made on Sunday at control

Divisions are very full (which is a good thing), however it means that it is essential that all crews marshal in good time - we will be turning crews away from Green Dragon bridge if you are late.

The full instructions are in the competitors instructions, but as a reminder
Crews x26-x55 must be below the finish line 35 minutes before their division time.
Crews x01-x25 must be below the finish line 25 minutes before their division time.

We will have St Johns Ambulance on the course - should you need their assistance please ask one of the marshals to contact them.

Logan's Way Boathouse Opening Speech

Speeches for the opening of the New Logan's Way Boathouse by Bill Key, President Cambridgeshire Rowing Association (Friday 28th August 2017)

For a considerable period since the CRA was formed over 150 years ago local clubs relied heavily on the use of boats owned by the various colleges.

Due to these arrangements the majority of the clubs weren't able to start their season until after the University May Races. Many a  member of my club, Cambridge Scouts', could be seen lurking in the shadows of the boathouse in June, breathing in the air from the Cam with eager anticipation.

In this short season the CRA organised the Time Race, the Town Bumps and Regatta.

Although the Time Race has only been held since 1930 the Bumps will be 100 years old next year.

The number of crews that rowed in the Town Bumps remained almost constant during the 1960's and 70's. Their were two divisions of 18 crews some of which were from colleges and all were mail participants.

Logan's Way Boathouse

The new boathouse in Logan's Way is now completed and boats will be moved in from Saturday 27th May.

This storage facility will house 10 x Eights and 10 x Fours.

Those using the boathouse are taken from the CRA waiting list and comprise boats belonging to City of Cambridge, Champion of the Thames, Chesterton, Rob Roy and X-Press.

Below is a photo showing the new racking system. There are five eights stored either side with a movable middle rack that will take ten fours.  Also a photograph of the new building which shows the Camrowers bay on the left and the CRA on the right (downstream).

This project was started 5 years ago and is a building of which the local rowing community can be justly proud of.

It has been supported by some significant grants from Sport England, The City of Cambridge Council 106 application and Landfill Tax
