Head of River

Head of River 2023 – Sunday 15th October


Important Update – Event cancelled

Due to the heavy rainfall in recent days, the river is currently in flood. We have taken the decision after multiple inspections, to cancel the event. This was not an easy decision to come to, but in the interests of saftey it is unfortunately necessary. Thank you for your patience and support throughout this process.


We are very happy to be able to be running our Head of River event again this year. The course remains the slightly shortened course ~ 3.4k as last year. This allowed for crews to finish short of our landing stage and de boat straight away which worked very well.

We are also running our short course ~ 2k again this year.

Please see the below draw and safety plan for the 2023 head of the river.

Weather is not an issue for us as our floating pontoon has served us well and given us access to the water even when water levels have dropped significantly.

Please see the poster, as well as drone footage of the course below.
