Head of the Don 2019
We are sorry to report that we have decided to cancel the Head of the Don on 6 October. Unfortunately we have not received sufficient entries to offer enough competition to make the event viable.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the planning of the event and who worked hard to make the boathouse and the river ready to host the event.
We are inviting feedback from other clubs to help us understand why they did not support the event and to consider steps that we can take to make the Head of the Don more attractive.
If you have any suggestions or feedback please let us know at email@example.com
