THERE was a record number of entries at the Burton Regatta at the weekend as the annual event returned to the River Trent.

The traditional two-day rowing event took place on the Regatta Meadows off the Burton Washlands and was organised by the Burton Amateur Regatta Association alongside the two rowing clubs in Burton, Trent Rowing Club and Burton Leander, both of whom were out in force over the weekend.

The Regatta was first held in 1865 and is one of the oldest annual sporting events in the country. It is nationally recognised as one of the finest remaining river regattas.

Racing started at 8.30am on both days, with Saturday offering a course length of 1,100 metres, racing from the Leicester Line railway bridge to the Ferry footbridge with 69 events, an increase of 18 from the previous year, consisting of 185 races.

Crews returned yesterday to compete over a 700-metre sprint course, with the same finishing line.

This was the busiest day with 70 events and an amazing 198 races.

For a full report and all the results from the 2014 Burton Regatta, check out Tuesday’s Burton Mail.
