Yorkshire Head IMPORTANT NEWS.

Yorkshire Head, 29 Feb, 2019.

The River Ouse in York is currently running at a high level (c 3.5 metres above summer level). The weather forecast for next week is more rain in the Ouse catchment, it is not clear what the effect of this rain will be, but we cannot be confident yet that the river will fall sufficiently for the Yorkshire Head of the River to be run safely. The Organising Committee will continue to monitor weather and river forecasts, and will consider all options for safely running the event. The Organising Committee will provide a further update on Wednesday 26th February, 2020.
