Monkton Bluefriars Small Boats Head – the head race on Saturday 12th October 2019 is cancelled.

Unfortunately, a large amount of water and debris has just been released from Bath (see video below of Twerton sluice open) and will continue to come down the river throughout the day, making marshaling and racing too dangerous.

Entries will be refunded.
