Cardinals Regatta

The 2018 Cardinals Regatta will take place in March. Please check back here in February for further information. Information from the 2017 Regatta is archived below:


St Catharine’s College Boat Club is delighted to announce the 2017 Catz Cardinals Regatta on the Thursday 16th March, promising to be the most fun and ridiculous race of the year. The races will start at  10:30am and finish around 4:30pm (provisional times depending on the number of entries).

The boats will be a mix of 4’s, 8’s and Tubs with prizes for the best dressed boats and crews. Boats should aim to be mixed crews but with bribes being almost as important as the racing itself, marshals could be swayed to overlook this.

The finals and semi-finals will be as exciting and strange as always with a mystery race for the semi-finals and a duel style race for the finals. Crews will race away from each other before being forced to spin as fast as possible before charging back towards each other to the middle of the reach.

After the races, the prizes will be distributed at Catz Boathouse within (roughly) an hour of the end of the last race. Everyone should attend whether you have taken part, spectated or just like to have a drink with your fellow boaties.

2017 Programme:

10:30am - 2pm:VIIIs - The first boats will race from 10:30am onwards with the final race expected at 1:40pm.

2:30pm - 4:30pm: IVs and Tubs

Draws and more precise division times are available on the facebook page:

If you have any question, don't hesitate to drop us a line.

See you on Thursday!
