VLRC NATIONAL SPRINTS REGATTA

Every year VLRC hosts the National Sprints Regatta attended by school, universities and clubs. In 2017 we launched the VLRC Corporate Challenge in which several corporates participate. This regatta was first run in 1907. It is one of the oldest regattas in South Africa, and is the largest all ages regatta with over 1500 athletes from U14 to masters competing.

VLRC National Sprints Regatta

In the last weekend of January of each year,  the Victoria Lake Rowing Club hosts the VLC National Sprints Regatta. The VLC National Sprints Regatta is a national rowing regatta supported by school, university and masters rowing clubs throughout the country. Due to our "national" status we are privileged to have umpires with national qualification status ensuring that the events run smoothly. The races are over a surveyed course of 1000m.
