About Us

Torbay Royal Regatta Rowing Events - launching from Torre Abbey Sands

West of England Rowing Races. Seafront Torquay For further information contact www.torquayrowingclub.co.uk

Rowing was a very popular sport in the second half of the 19th Century - with much more spectator interest than today with professional oarsmen racing for very large sums of money becoming the heroes of the day. When one Newcastle oarsman died, over 130 000 people turned out for his funeral! In the West of England rowing was also a popular sport and many of the clubs now affiliated to the West of England A.R.A. had been formed long before the association itself.

The first meeting of the West of England Amateur rowing Association (W.E.A.R.A) was held at The Bradley Hotel, Newton Abbot on 29th January 1896. Those present included delegates from Exeter ARC, Totnes ARC, Dart ARC, Torquay ARC, Paignton ARC, and Dartmouth ARC.
