Series background


The Northern Rowing Council, with the help of host clubs, runs the Long Distance Sculling (LDS)  series every autumn. We aim to have six competitions over six consecutive weekends, though poor conditions can intervene.


The LDS series is for sculling boats only - singles, doubles, quads and octuplets (not all locations). They are open to all age groups and categories. There are prizes for winning crews in each competition and a Victor Ludorum for clubs over the series as a whole.


There are associated but independent Small Boats Head (SBH) competitions with sculling and sweep in the afternoon on four of the six days.
