Tees Rowing Club The Slipway North Shore Stockton-on-Tees TS18 2NL


The Tees Rowing Club ‘Minihead’ is an informal time trial run once a month over a shortened version of the Tees Small Boats Head/Long Distance Sculls course.

The race is generally followed by bacon sandwiches and toast with a cup of tea in the River Tees Watersports Centre and the results are ordered by ‘adjusted time’ based on the crew age, sex and boat type. This way, an older single sculler or adaptive rower can fairly mix it with the Senior Men’s 8+ and those new to rowing using the L2R boats can see their representative time.

The event is run on a rota basis by different squads to ensure the workload is shared around the club and everyone gets to take part as much as possible.
