The next Rankin Regatta dates will be announced sometime in February/March once we receive confirmation from our American hosts. Watch our calendar for details to follow.
The winner of each race gets a really big trophy (for a year), a smaller trophy (that you get to keep forever and ever!) and flags are awarded as well.
While the emphasis is on racing, each race is a great social event as well. Some folks come along just for the party. If you want to experience the thrill of racing then come join one of our crews. No experience required. See our Events Calendar and Contact us today!
