The pinnacle of the university rowing season is the University Rowing National Championships. This regatta is held at different locations each year and pits university rowers at all levels against each other in a battle for University rowing supremacy. The most prestigious race of the regatta is that for the highly coveted Hebberly Shield; a tradition that dates back to 1928.
