13th February 2020
With great regret we have cancelled the event.
We felt that river conditions would deteriorate and go to red status. We are the only reach on the Thames at yellow status and more rain has fallen and will fall.
The advent on Saturday of Storm Dennis is of course a major factor in our decision. The storm has remained on this date without variation in all the forecasts we have used. Winds are going to be around 30mph gusting to over 50mph, and with heavy rain.
In consequence we have decided against running an unsafe and unpleasant event.
We had hoped to put on a really good racing day for Masters and Juniors, and the entry had promised good competition – but not to be!
