Women's Eight Head of the River Race

The Pennants eligibility document has now been updated for the 2022 race. Due to the restrictions to on-water rowing, and in particular crew rowing, over the past 2 years the Committee has made the decision to temporarily extend the eligibility period for Beginner crews by one year, such that rowers will qualify as beginner if they started rowing after 1st March 2019 (would have normally been 1st March 2020). This is the only major change from previous years.

Entries will open on Friday 14th January. Watch our social media channels for more information!

The lists for the clubs eligible for the Small and Medium Club Pennants for 2022 are now available:

Usually, these would have been published earlier and any queries would have needed to be submitted by the end of December. Due to the delay in publishing the lists this year, we will be accepting queries up until the 31st January 2022.

Updates to pennant criteria will follow in the next couple of days, and entries will be opening shortly. Continue to watch this space!

The committee are still finalising some of the entry categories. You will appreciate that this has been harder than normal due to the lack racing over the last 18 months. Watch this space and our social media channels for updates of when entries open and close.

Happy New Year!
