Durham regatta prides itself on its strict welfare policies in place, for the benefit and protection of crews, spectators and officials.
In addition to first aid and ambulance cover, provided by the British Red Cross, the regatta also has a fully trained and CRB cleared welfare officer and access to two medical doctors.
The main first aid facility is located adjacent to the bandstand. In addition, roving patrols will cover the racecourse enclosure, including the Durham ARC boating area. Should medical attention be required, and you are unable to make your way to the first aid facility or nearest first aider, please summon the nearest regatta official.
Lost and Found Children
The lost children’s facility is located in the portacabin adjacent to regatta control, upstream of the bandstand. Lost children should make themselves known to the nearest regatta official, who will make arrangements for the child to be escorted to the lost children’s facility.
Whilst the regatta does not object to photographs being taken for personal use, no photographs of the regatta may be published either online or in the media without express written permission of the Durham Regatta Committee. If you wish to publish a photograph, please request permission from the Secretary. The Durham Regatta Committee reserve the right to take action against any photographs published without express written permission.
The welfare officer can be contacted through Regatta Control, which is located adjacent to the start platform, upstream of the bandstand.
