Bath Robe

Start Time: 24 February 2024
End Time: 25 February 2024

It is a common misconception the city of Bath was founded by the Romans in 60 AD because of its soothing hot springs, rich in minerals and natural beauty. While this is a partial truth, the greatest draw the city had was in fact its proximity to another venerated body of water, Chew Valley Lake.

The temples and shrines built in Aquae Sulis served to commemorate the great victories won by Julius Caesar at the ancient game of team racing. It was at Chew Valley that the mighty emperor pinned out the Celtic Queen Boudicca on the final beat, cementing Roman rule in Britain. Thus Bath became a place of pilgrimage for team racers throughout the centuries. In 1499 construction began on Bath Abbey, its stained glass windows depicting the filthiest plays from the team racing call book. And, in 1767, the Georgian architect John Wood the Younger built the Royal Crescent as a representation of the perfect curvature of sail.

You, team racer, can be part of this proud tradition by signing up for the Bath Robe 2024!
