SUABC Regatta Cancelled
As of 09:00 Thursday morning, the Avon is high and running too fast for many of the attending young junior crews to safely marshal and compete.
The forecast for the river level for Friday is to rise significantly, to the extent it will likely close navigation to unpowered craft.
Whilst the river level is then forecast to fall through Friday night and through Saturday, the Club has regretfully come to the conclusion that we have to cancel this year’s regatta.
This decision has not been taken lightly, and done so within the context of the many young, inexperienced and low RPI entrants. It is the correct call on safety grounds.
All clubs, sponsors, and support crews will be contacted directly. Entry fees will be refunded in full, in due course, by the payment method used.
Thank you to everyone for their support and understanding. We hope to see you next year in more clement conditions.
