2013 Thames Valley Trial Head postponed

At a recent meeting of the Marlow Regatta committee it was regretfully decided that the 2013 Thames Valley Trial Head, scheduled in the calendar for 3rd February, would be postponed. This decision was reached following site inspections at Dorney Lake, and meetings with Dorney Lake staff, where reconstruction works following the 2012 Olympics are underway. The reconstruction work is expected to continue well into 2013 and currently none of the normally grass areas in the vicinity of the boat house, or in the final 500m+ of the course, are (or will be) available.

The decision was not taken lightly and various options were looked into, but it was felt that we could not safely run the event, specifically the parking of competitors cars, trailers & boats, with the expected areas of the Dorney Lake site that would be available.

The Regatta Committee hope to reschedule the 2013 Thames Valley Trial Head to a date in November and are currently investigating options with Dorney Lake and the British Rowing events coordinator to see if this is possible. An update on this will be published later in the year.
