About us

John Waugh Rock the Boat was dreamt up in 2013 by James Thompson and Matthew Brittain. It’s the regatta that throws out all of the rules and aims to get as many people as possible involved in this awesome sport. A race like no other, offering clubs, parents or old boys and girls, the chance to team up and race against the best of the best.

Can your crew beat the likes of Olympic Gold medalists
John Smith or Lawrence Brittain?

How does Rock the Boat work?

A regatta with a difference

As with most things at Rock the Boat anything goes, everyone can enter in any boat class or combination you can dream up.

Timed racing

In the morning session of the regatta, all crews will race a head race in either the 1km or the 2km event. Based only on times achieved in this head race, crews will be ranked into a series of finals in standard eight lane format – with the fastest 8 crews in ‘A-final’, the next 8 into the ‘B-Final’ and so on.

Close finishes

The difference comes in that the crews competing in each final will not necessarily be of the same class (or even gender or age!), but will rather be of very similar speed across the water, guaranteeing some cracking racing and close finishes.

High performers

Each crew will have their time compared to the John Waugh Rock the Boat benchmark times, and the crew with the highest percentage will be deemed the HPC High Performer of the day.
