The Home International Regatta is a rowing regatta held every year for the countries of the British Isles - England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Events are held for both men and women at junior (under 18) and senior levels, including Para-rowing events. The race has been held since 1962 and each country takes it in turns to host the event. Prior to moving to Cardiff Bay, Welsh Rowing hosted the event outside Wales on a number of occasions in both Strathclyde and Ghent.[1][2]

History[edit]

At The News of the World sponsored regatta on the Serpentine Regatta in Hyde Park, a Home International or "Quadrangular" was held between 1962 and 1964. Unfortunately the sponsorship was dropped and the competition lapsed. In 1966 however the competition was revived with a match in Monmouth in Wales. The following year the competition was expanded to include a junior men's match. Women's rowing followed in 1969 and finally a women's junior match in 1984.

Trophies[edit]

The trophies competed for are as follows (brackets designate the donating country):

  • Men  : News of the World Cup (England)
  • Women  : The County Renfrew Rosebowl (Scotland)
  • Junior Men  : The Duncan Trophy (Scotland)
  • Junior Women : The Irish Travel Agency Cup (Ireland)

Racing Colours[edit]

The racing colours of each country are as follows:

Country Blade All-in-one
England White with St George's cross in red White with three lions and England printed in red on back
Ireland Green Green with shamrock emblem
Scotland Blue with white saltire Blue with white thistle
