Yorkshire Head 2016

The Yorkshire Head 2016 is now open for entries. Changes for this year are earlier race start times and the addition of mixed events. The event poster for the Yorkshire Head is available here from the Yorkshire Rowing Council website. 5000m downstream on the River Ouse from Rawcliffe Landing to Lendal Bridge, in the heart of York.

River levels- new link

Due to the environment agency updating their website, the webcam page which normally looks at the Viking recorder and tells you how many steps are showing is currently not accurate.

While we sort this out, you can access the correct data here


Club Cleanup

Now the waters have gone down, the task of cleaning up will begin on Sunday 3rd Jan at 9am

Bacon sandwiches for volunteers!


It's obviously been an eventful week in York over Christmas. Compared to many private properties who suffered significant flooding, we have little to complain about really. Both boathouses flooded with the main site around a metre deep in the boat bays. Thanks to prompt action on Boxing Day, all boats are safe.

The club will reopen for business as soon as possible and members will be contacted regarding the cleanup event.

Small Boats Head - CANCELLED

The Small Boats Head has been cancelled for Sunday 13th December.

The Ouse is at a very high level after the flooding from the weekend. We've been advised by the Environment Agency that it will not be low enough to race on Sunday. Thanks to all who entered and apologies for the inconvenience.

Small Boats Head

The poster for the Small Boats Head on Sunday 22nd November 2015 is now available on the events page. 3000m upstream from Fulford Landing to Kings Staithe on the River Ouse.
