Entry for QErgs 2021 is now open! We're looking forward to returning and seeing all your novice crews competing for erg glory! There are a few changes to the format of the event to keep everyone safe, but the race itself remains the same: an 8x500m erg sprint in crews of 8, with the fastest crew crowned champion.


Rules for the 2021 competition can be found HERE. Please print the document, read it and sign the form at the bottom. A signed copy should be submitted to the QErgs co-presidents electronically no later than 2 days before the competition.

Date and Time

The competition will be held on Sunday 7th November 2021 from 9am to 6pm. Entries close on Thursday 28th October 2021.


The competition will be an 8x500m relay.


The categories for entry will be:

  • 1st Novice Men's VIIIs
  • 1st Novice Women's VIIIs
  • 2nd Novice Men's VIIIs
  • 2nd Novice Women's VIIIs
  • Mixed Senior VIII's - 4 women and 4 men per team, who have not competed in QErgs before.

In order to allow rowers who missed out on QErgs last year to race this year, the mixed senior division will be restricted to rowers who have not competed in QErgs before, for example because they only noviced last year.

Since we also have more limited slots this year, we can only guarantee entry for two boats per college (NW1 and NM2). Please enter more crews if you have them since we will randomly ballot the remaining slots (and refund the ones which we unfortunately couldn't fit in). Senior crews will be allocated slots on a seperate ballot.


Queens' Ergs T-shirts are given to all competitors and must be worn during the event. Select the (unisex) size required for each rower on the team entry form.

Entry price includes t-shirts for the eight rowers. Extra shirts can be bought on demand for an extra charge for coxes/LBCs/coaches. Email qcbc-ergs@srcf.net with quantity and sizes required.


Prizes will be awarded to the fastest crews in each division as well as the fastest individual (novice) male time and female time.


The price for the entry of one crew is 80£.

Payment can be made by bank transfer or cheque. Please make bank transfers to the QCBC account with your college/institution and QERGS in the description.
