Thank you very much for supporting the head on Sunday, despite the reduced entry there was some excellent competitive racing and I hope you all had a good time.The results are available on the events page.
If you have any feedback on the event please let me know, we are always trying to improve it.
The next event at York is the Yorkshire Head, this will take place on Saturday 14th March (not 7th March as previously advertised). Hope to see you there and thanks once again for coming on Sunday.
Please find the confirmed starting order for Sunday on the events page. Predictably the rescheduling has resulted in a number of clubs being unable to make the new date but we still have a good competitive entry across the board. There are a few things to note:-
- The Division times are 10am, 12noon and 2pm
- We do not have use of the Esplanade Car Park so please look at the attached Crew Instructions for parking arrangements. Trailers must use the designated route
- There is likely to be a fishing match (near the marshalling area), the angling club know our event is on, please ask your crews to be courteous to any fishermen on the bank
- The forecast is dry for the rest of the week so we do not have any flooding concerns but it is turning colder so please make sure competitors have plenty of warm kit
Thank you for supporting the Head, look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

The draw for the the revised Small Boats Head is available on the events page.
Small Boats Head rescheduled for Sunday 7th December
BROE open for entries until 9am Monday 1st December
Unfortunately we are having to postpone 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.
The Draw for the York Small Boats Head 2014 is now available. Please check out the events page for all the details on this years race.
Thank you to all who have entered the Head, we are now full and closed to further entries.
The draw will be on the York City Rowing Club website (http://www.ycrc.co.uk/) on Monday night.
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.
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.
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:
DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENTS IN THESE EMAILS
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.
