For the last three years, the Thames Valley Trial Head, organised by the Committee of Marlow Regatta, and staged at Dorney Lake, has been cancelled; twice for accurate forecasts of wind which would make both trailer towing and race conditions unsafe, and once because the lake was frozen. Each year, the organisers have suffered losses, having refunded all entry fees, and paid some contractors.

For these reasons, it has been reluctantly decided not to attempt to run the event at the end of January in 2018.

It is hoped that there will be an opportunity to stage a similar event, towards the end of October, when we hope to be luckier with the weather. The Committee trusts that our regular competing Clubs will be understanding and will support the new event.
