Building from the milestone Marlow Spring Regatta, Marlow Town Regatta 2018 further pushed the adaptive support forward increased the number of adaptive medal events from 11 to 14 – the biggest adaptive/pararowing competition in the UK.  It also experimented with a number of refinements to the adaptive racing protocols to improve safety, operation, and satisfaction from the athletes.

Also of interest to those reading this will be the feature on River-based Regattas, which includes a section on Marlow Town Regatta, and which appears in the June/July 2018 edition of British Rowing's River & Rowing Magazine.  See link here
