The Boat Races

Cygnet & BBL would like to invite you to come down to the club for this year’s boat race on Saturday, the 30th of March. 

We have a great spot for viewing the races as they zip down the river (with the first race starting at 2.46pm) and our bar will be open from midday. We’ll also be selling a mix of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks both in the bar and on the hard this year from 12pm onwards. Friends and family are more than welcome - please bring anyone who would like to come! 

To make the day enjoyable for everyone we’d love if some attendees could offer a helping hand at the outside bar – we expect it to be bustling as a prime viewing spot but we promise it won’t get in the way of your enjoyment! The sign up sheet for volunteer slots is here. No tasks should be particularly difficult and they’ve been set out in the spreadsheet. This is a joint Cygnet/BBL endeavour and we’d really appreciate if all could get involved to help raise essential funds to keep our clubs running.

For those coming down to the club, please note that Barnes Bridge will be closed from 10.00am and won't re-open until 5.00pm! The weather may vary so dress accordingly.

Please also note that we won’t be able to put a big screen up in the bar due to connectivity issues but attendees will be able to watch the races on the TV in the bar, on the hard, and races will also be aired live on BBC 1, BBC Sport Live and BBC iPlayer for anyone streaming on their phones.

Looking forward to seeing most of you there.
