The River Wear Tour in 2018 took place at Sunderland on Saturday 28 July. This was the fourth occasion this annual event for stable coxed boats had been run. Organised by City of Sunderland Rowing Club it covered a distance of approximately 20km of the tidal River Wear, starting and finishing at South Hylton, where participants were able to enjoy a post-event BBQ.

Because of the tide timings this year (low tide is at 10.55am) there was be a change to the usual plan. The tour set off downstream, going as far as the Glass Centre, then returned upstream with the tide, and continued to Cox Green, before returning downstream again to finish at South Hylton. There was an opportunity to land and have a short break or swap crews at South Hylton at the halfway point.


Approximate timings were:
Registration at 11.00am
Boating at 12.30pm
Tour commenced at 1.00pm
