Please note that the Local Authority are increasingly strict about traffic and parking on Dukes Meadows during Head Races.
Marshals are in place to help so please obey their instructions: they are not trying to be obstructive but are trying to ensure that Dukes Meadows remains open for Head Race boating by meeting the council's requirements. You cooperation and understanding is much appreciated.
For most heads we charge a small boating fee – to cover costs.
This fee is not a deposit and should be paid in cash or by card when collecting your race numbers. No boating fee, no number.
Once the boat limit is reached the hard will be closed for boating:
|Boat class||Boating fee||Boat Limit|
|Singles||no fee||80 boats|
|Pairs/Doubles||£5 / crew||80 crews|
|Fours/Quads||£10 / crew||60 crews|
|Eights||£20 / crew||60 crews|
