Race postponed: Announcement

Due to the extraordinary tidal conditions being experienced on the Thames at present , all Tideway head races have been forced to revise plans for their respective events. Rather than race a significantly reduced field on a flood tide on the scheduled day, we would like to make every effort to keep the full race and have therefore agreed with the Port of London Authority to postpone the race until WEDNESDAY 26th MARCH with a scheduled start time of 1330, more than three hours after high tide, which should ensure a milder tide and safer conditions for all crews.

I apologise for the considerable inconvenience this may cause some crews but the alternatives available would certainly have involved partial or full cancellation. Should conditions on Tideway not improve by mid March , we have been kindly offered the opportunity to move the event to Eton Dorney.

We will extend the entry deadline by a week, to give clubs and schools an opportunity to revise their entries .

Many thanks, CD Riches
