York Small Boats Head Cancelled

Unfortunately we are having to cancel tomorrow’s event. There was a lot of rain last night and the Environment Agency are forecasting the river to come up overnight to a level that would be impossible to run the Head.

Sorry for the inconvenience this causes, especially to those crews who have already travelled to York, it is a big disappointment to everyone.

We will be in touch in the next few days to confirm what we are planning to do with regards to rearranging and/or refunds.

York Small Boats Head 2014 - Poster

The poster for the York Small Boats Head 2014 is now available on the event page. 3000m downstream on the River Ouse. Engraved Glass Goblet for all event winners and winning coxes.

River is NOT in the boathouse

Contrary to what our webcam page may say (and ongoing apologies for the webcam outage), the river Ouse is NOT in the boathouse!

It is actually 4.5m below the boathouse.

Most odd........

Update: This has now been fixed!

Email attack- please read this if you have received an email titled "overdue invoice #28358322378" and are concerned

We have been contacted by several concerned members of the general public who have received emails titled as above that purport to be from YCRC.

This is a scam email containing malware/ viruses that has nothing to do with YCRC.

For information only, you can read all about this kind of attack here:


Key points from this link:


They contain malware and almost all of these also have a password stealing component, with the aim of stealing your bank, PayPal or other financial details along with your email or FTP ( web space) log in credentials. Many of them are also designed to specifically steal your Facebook and other social network log in details.

All the alleged senders, companies, names of employees and phone numbers mentioned in the emails are all innocent and are just picked at random. Some of these companies will exist and some won’t. Don’t try to respond by phone or email, all you will do is end up with an innocent person or company who have had their details spoofed and picked at random from a long list that the bad guys have previously found.
