DUE TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY, THIS YEAR’S REGATTA HAS BEEN CANCELLED
It had been due to take place on Saturday 9 May 2020
This year it was our turn to host the prestigious West of England Challenge Vase. It has always been for Open coxed fours, and this year was to bring in the corresponding event for Women.
The names of the winners of both events would have been added to the famous trophy, and special pots with stampings awarded to the winners of both events.
Avon County RC’s annual regatta (Bristol Avon Regatta) takes place on the River Avon just upstream of Avon County’s boathouse, on our straight 1000 metre course.

In its heyday, the regatta was called “the Henley of the West”. The Saltford regatta history (pdf 491kb) gives a vivid picture of an Edwardian Regatta. In the 1970s the Regatta moved to Bristol docks, and it moved back to Saltford in 2008.
