Schools' Head 2021 - Details

Entries are now open on BROE for the Schools Virtual Head of the River which will take place between Monday 22nd March and Sunday 4th April . Entries will remain open throughout this time. No restrictions on how many events may be entered but we would prefer that no one individual competed in the same category more than once and that ‘second’ crews really are just that! There are events in all kinds of boats for all junior classes. The main purpose of this event is to celebrate getting back on the water and going as fast as you can backwards!


Schools' Head 2021 - Update

The event on the tideway is cancelled, but there is a plan to run remote events on your home stretch of water over the much shorter course of 2112m (HRR Distance).
