Dear all

Sunday 26 May sees the annual Cambridge Nines Regatta – a hell-for-leather 1000m sprint up the Long Reach for crews of eight, from Ditton Corner to the Lower Finish.

If you are a college crew training for the May Bumps then this is the perfect opportunity to practise those racing starts and size up the opposition. If you are a town rower, why not get a crew together and show them how it's done?

This year we have a category for college alumni rowers too.

The regatta is a plate competition, so those who lose their first heat get to row again against other crews in the same position for a 'second place' prize. Everyone gets to race at least twice (if not more) and all of your races should be compete in under 90 min.

All winning crews will get glass tankards. The club with the most winning crews wins a bonus prize of a slab of beer!

The bar at the Cambridge '99 RC boathouse will be open after racing for prizes, and burgers and a BBQ will also be on offer.

More details and a poster are available on the Cambridge '99 RC website at nines.rowing.org.uk. Entries via email to regatta at nines.rowing.org.uk by Tuesday 14 May 2013.

We hope to see you there!
