Event Cancelled

14.11.2019 17:10 The Organising Committee regrets that the forecast river level for Sunday is too high for the Small Boats’ Head to be run safely; and therefore the event is cancelled.  All entry fees will be refunded.  The Committee is considering options for rescheduling the Small Boat’s Head, please look for updates on the website.
