Cancellation of Maidenhead Regatta

We are very sorry to have to advise you that the 2019 Maidenhead Regatta has had to be cancelled on the basis of the current weather forecast where strong winds are expected across the region.

The Regatta  Committee has been monitoring the weather forecast closely over the past few days and, regrettably in the interests of the safety and well being of all competitors, spectators & volunteers we have decided unanimously that the risks presented by the weather were too great. The expected strong winds (circa 25mph) and gusts (circa 40-50mph) will mean that the conditions may be unsafe for travelling to the event with trailers as well as to race in. It has been a difficult decision to make, and one that has not been taken lightly without proper consultation and consideration of all possible alternatives.

The Regatta Committee has been taking steps to minimise costs incurred, and some costs were unavoidable, but we do intend to offer a full refund of entries fees. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who had entered or who had volunteered to help as your continued support for Maidenhead Regatta is very much appreciated.

For those of you who are especially disappointed at missing out on your regatta burger and pint of beer - we are organising a Regatta BBQ at the Maidenhead Rowing Club boathouse from 3:00pm to 11:00pm where a range of food and drinks will be on offer. It would fantastic if our friends from local rowing clubs would still be able to join us!

We look forward to seeing you next year

Kind regards

The Regatta Committee

Please note that for safety reasons portable or disposable BBQs are not allowed in the spectator area on the riverbank.

Maidenhead Rowing Club has a thriving Daytime Squad who meet on Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9:30am for a couple of hours on the river.

A group of all ages and experience, we sometimes have as many as 20 coming down to row a beautiful stretch of the Thames, under the iconic Brunel Sounding Arch bridge, as it widens out on its way down to Bray Lock.

We have a mixture of singles, doubles, quads and even a triple on hand as we mix and match members to ensure that those looking to improve their skills get an experienced ‘bow’ to steer and monitor technique along the way!

Above all it is a fun group who have the pleasure of rowing on one of the most beautiful stretches of river in the country. 

 

We have not received the necessary data from the Environment Agency flow meter since 14th November.

 

On investigation, it has been found that we will no longer receive the data so are unable to maintain this feature of the website. 

 

Please use the Gauge Map to determine the river flow and the thermometer on the pontoon to check the temperature.
