    After cancellations due to Covid in 2020 and 2021, the Regatta Committee was very pleased to welcome everybody to the 2022 Reading Amateur Regatta. The weekend racing program was full with approximately 200 races held on both Saturday and Sunday. The result tables can be viewed on this page.
    The weather was great and the river flow was normal which contributed to excellent racing conditions.
    You can still download your copy of the Reading Amateur Regatta Souvenir Programm here (in PDF) and read all about the special race between Reading RC and Wasser-Sport-Verein Düsseldorf held to celebrate the 180th aniversary of the Reading Amateur Regatta.
