The Yorkshire Head

Yorkshire Head CANCELLED

Yorkshire Rowing Council Yorkshire Head Commissioner, Anne Homa.
  • 5000m downstream on the River Ouse from Rawcliffe Landing to Lendal Bridge, in the heart of York
  • 200+ crews across 2 divisions
  • Main source of Rowing Council income, funding Regional activities
  • Hosted by York City Rowing club, run by volunteers from across the region

Unfortunately the weather forecast was correct and we are having to cancel tomorrow’s event. The environment agency are predicting the river to rise 0.5m with the rain and snow we have had overnight and it is still raining today in York and snowing in the hills.

This is so frustrating for everyone concerned, lets hope we have a more successful head season next winter. We will refund all entries that have been paid on BROE, please send me your bank details and we do a bank transfer.

Thank you to everyone who was supporting the event, I look forward to seeing you at the next event in the region, York Spring Regatta on Saturday 30th April.

Yorkshire Head Commissioner
