Many fixed seat rowing races are held around Wales. These are divided into league and non-league races. Generally speaking the non-league races are longer and are an opportunity for one crew only whilst the league races have multiple classes run separately. The league race, therefore, allows different crews to compete using the same boat- each race taking about 30-45 mins.

Points are won in league races according to the following schedule (2019):

Place 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Rest
Points for Joint Races 20 17 15 13 11 9 7 5 4 3 2
Points for North/South Races 15 12 10 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

As you can see, for the top 4 places, joint races score 5 points more per place than the North or South races.

There are a number of categories in the WSRA league-

  • CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP (Best Team from each race Seniors, Ladies and Mixed)
  • CLUB SHIELD (All Points, except Championship points, from Seniors, Ladies, Juniors and Mixed)

The North, South and Joint classes also have class categories:

  • Seniors
  • Womens
  • Mixed 
  • Juniors
